Default VT memorial Poem

Got this on myspace, maybe some of you have seen it before. If not, i hope you like it. Just as a heads up, it's kinda sad.


Mommy.. Johnny brought a gun to school,

He told his friends that it was cool,

And when he pulled the trigger back,

It shot with a great crack.

Mommy, I was a good girl, I did What I was told,

I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got the gold!

But Mommy, when I went to school that day,

I never said good-bye,

I'm sorry Mommy, I had to go, But Mommy, please don't cry.

When Johnny shot the gun, He hit me and another,

And all because Johnny, Got the gun from his older brother.

Mommy, please tell Daddy; That I love him very much,

And please tell Zack; my boyfriend; That it wasn't just a crush.

And tell my little sister; That she is the only one now,

And tell my dear sweet grandmother; I'll be waiting for her now,

And tell my wonderful friends; That they always were the best;

Mommy, I'm not the first, I'm no better than the rest.

Mommy, tell my teachers; I won't show up for class,

And never to forget this, And please don't let this pass.

Mommy, why'd it have to be me? No one deserves this,

Mommy, warn the others, Mommy I left without a kiss.

And Mommy tell the doctors; I know they really did try,

I think I even saw a doctor, Trying not to cry.

Mommy, I'm slowly dying, With a bullet in my chest,

But Mommy please remember, I'm in heaven with the rest.

Mommy I ran as fast as I could,

When I heard that crack, Mommy, listen to me if you would,

I wanted to go to college, I wanted to try things that were new,

I guess I'm not going with Daddy, On that trip to the new zoo.

I wanted to get married, I wanted to have a kid,

I wanted to be an actress, Mommy, I wanted to live.

But Mommy I must go now, The time is getting late,

Mommy, tell my Zack, I'm sorry but I had to cancel the date.

I love you Mommy, I always have, I know; you know it's true,

And Mommy all I say is, "Mommy, I love you."

It's not very accurately written to describe the events at VT but it is a sad poem none the less. Who wrote it?

yeah, i know its not very accurate it sounds more like its describing an elementary school shooting. Not sure who wrote it, i got it from a friend on myspace in his bulletin. He is not exactly a poet so i know it wasn't him...

that is sad, but it is also a stock poem that someones found rather than one that someone's written, it reminded me a lot of this poem...
(which does the rounds around celebration times)
Quote:
"I went to a party, Mom"
I went to a party, Mom
and remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom
so I had a sprite instead.

I felt proud of myself, Mom
the way you said I would,
that I didn't drink and drive, Mom
though some friends said I should.
I made a healthy choice, Mom
and your advice to me was right
as the party finally ended, Mom
and the kids drove out of sight.

I got into my car, Mom
sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was coming, Mom
something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement, Mom
And I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,"
Mom, His voice seems far away.

My own blood's all around me, Mom
as I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say, Mom
This girl is going to die."

I'm sure the guy had no idea, Mom
while he was flying high,
because he chose to drink and drive, Mom
now I would have to die.

So why do people do it, Mom
Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me, Mom
like a hundred stabbing knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom
tell daddy to be brave,
and when I go to heaven, Mom
put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.

Someone should have taught him, Mom
that its wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had, Mom
I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom
I'm getting really scared.
These are my final moments, Mom
and I'm so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me Mom,
as I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say I love you, Mom
So I love you and good-bye.
