50 Cell Phones

50 cell phones ring,
In a night club in Orlando,
Trying to reach 50 people,
Who will never come home.

America has a moment of silence,
Before the bickering begins,
All the while the families are in a nightmare,
That will never end.

I don’t know if you’ve watched the news,
In the last few years or so,
But the violence is escalating,
No sign of it to slow.

So let over 50 cell phones ring,
In all 50 states.
For every voice that was silence in that club,
Let the government know that we’re irate.

How can so many other countries,
Not have the same problem as ours?
What can we do differently,
To protect those in our hearts?

Stop demanding that we sit at home,
And pray that it goes away.
Because while we wait for miracles,
50 cell phones ring today.
