Message from Writer

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."
"You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lines. You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I'll rise."
-Maya Angelou

The People Left Behind

There are always people left behind
No matter what you do,
And whoever has been gone
Will leave a gaping hole inside.

A gun and taser aren't so similar
How can there be a "mistake?"
Lives are just so precious,
How can you bear to take?

It begins like clockwork,
Like an eternal chain,
Stretching back a hundred years
Privilege carving out a path of greed.

Every person isn't just a body,
Every single one's a star,
I hope they're seeing what was left behind
Watching down from afar.

There's always people left behind
No matter what you do,
And every day without the ones lost
Leaves a bleeding wound.
