"Sad and Beautiful," Israt Hossain, Sixth Grade, PS 122Q

People are panicked
yet soft
Walls are white
pure white
ghost white.
Cases dot the room
Bathed in blue lights
almost like a sign
from the sky.
Inside each case is innocence
a child.
His mother is crying
She was never pretty before
now she´s beautiful
like a sad angel
bathed in all that blue light.
Isn´t it ironic?
You can be both sad and beautiful
at the same exact time.
