The Sights I See

By Jahmir, Wilmington, DE

As I look beside me
So many sights I see
A mother holding her starving child
A poor girl reviled
Little kids crying outside
A man stripped of his pride
A family mourning the death
Of one forced to breathe his last breath

As I look behind me
So many sights I see
A mother struggling to provide
Though constantly denied
A sister now lost to me
Another soon to be
A father I will never want
Whom I will never vaunt
A family ashamed
I am to blame

As I look inside me
So many sights I see
Sorrow like no other
Unable to share with another
An enthralling fear
Piercing like a spear
A suffocating loss of hope
