The Ripple Effect

by starstruck13

The ripple effect began,
when someone you love is killed
a brother, sister be it a mother or dad
or perhaps a friend
by accident or another means
the person is dead
and then the ripple effect has begun.

Throw a stone out into a pond
that represents the person that's dead
now watch as it makes circles, around the dead
around, around each family is torn in half
so this my friend is a ripple effect,
everyone's life in touched in some way and life can never be the same
not ever again,
not when the ripple effect has began...

and this I know is true I have lost a daddy, sister and a brother.
