Reflections >> Poem by Matthew Rotolo (8th grade 2002)


Bad News

It struck the nation like a never-ending bee sting,

Mass confusion, hurt, pain, anger, patriotism wiped over the human race,

The unforgettable tears of a hole in the heart on a Mother's face

The horrific news that has changed life forever,

I just saw the caveman Sunday, and now...he's gone forever

My friend, my role model, my hero...my uncle...is gone forever,

I still feel his presence among me,

In my dreams, while revisiting pictures, in Fagawi, in my heart.

He is gone...until I meet him,

Until I meet him again
