Gun control

Look,
look at you,
look at the complexity of you,
look in the mirror at you,
yes, look at all of you,
hair,
head,
eyes,
face,
arms,
hands and fingers,
chest,
hips,
legs,
feet too.
Yes, look at you,
imagine you,
imagine you with a gun in front of a mirror,
imagine your family stood behind you as you hold it up to your head,
imagine you shooting you,
imagine the tears,
imagine the distress.
Yes, imagine you on the floor in front of them in a pool of blood,
and in a bloody mess,
yes,
imagine you,
imagine you no longer breathing,
imagine you dead.
Imagine you no longer you,
imagine the damage to your family,
imagine the pain and the suffering,
imagine it multiplied amongst your family members,
your family members all of which who loved you,
yes, imagine you,
imagine you dead,
imagine you pointing a gun,
a gun to someone else’s head.
imagine you,
imagine you pulling the trigger,
imagine the faces of their loved ones and their distress,
imagine you,
imagine you without a gun and a society without guns,
imagine a better society,
a more peaceful society,
a happy society,
imagine,
imagine how great it would be,
imagine you and society living peacefully.
imagine a country without the fear of guns hanging over everyone’s head.
imagine,
imagine the lives saved,
imagine,
imagine if it came true,
and from guns there were no more deaths.
