Think about this

Just take a moment and think of this 

A arm that's bruised and beaten 

Ripped open from the outside in 


Think about this 

A leg cut open from years of being dismissed 

Just a teenager over reacting 

Nothings wrong 

nothings happening 

Just lies for attention 


Just think about this 

A note gone unread 

a leter never send 

Now a girl laid to rest. 


Now think about this 

A scream in the night 

A heart that just died 

A mother left alone 

How could she have known 


Why don't you think about this? 

Why didn't you think about this? 

Why didn't I? 

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
