The Search For the Suspect

(Inspiration:  News …and a black white photo of a search party)

Every school day, two girls
Walked home together
Laughing and talking
About all the events
Of the day and beyond
Each knowing secrets
Likes and so much more
Friends forever until

One day the two girls
Were walking home
From school as usual
Until
Shots rang out
One girl, no longer
The other scared
For life

There were many
To gather
To offer prayers
And support

And to search
Search for the suspect

Questions
Linger
Why
And is anyone safe

A city waits for answers
Prayers and support
…by Pauline Harris

Dedicated to the two girls, their families, and Wichita Falls.
