Orlando

I try to understand.    I cannot.

I try to find peace.     I cannot

I try to find love.         I must

I try to find forgiveness.  In whose name? 

There are so many

Names of murdered

children

theater goers

students 

Mothers, 

Fathers

Sisters, 

Brothers

Husbands, 

Wives

Black, 

White, 

Latina

Latino

Asian

Indian

Christian

Jew

Muslim

Atheist

Agnostic

Gay

Lesbian

Bi

Transgender

Intersex

Straight.

I try 

To find 

My voice

To find

Forgiveness
I try.

And weep.
