Where Were You ?

They asked you for help

.

.

With their silent eyes 

They called for you 

In their muted tears 

They screamed for you to see them 

.

.

Where were you, then? 

.

.

Making choices for “their best interests” 

Not caring when they told you

They felt helpless

.

.

I’m sorry children

You had no advocate 

.

.

I’m sorry your short life 

Had so much sadness In it 

.

.

Where were you?

When their silent tears 

Flooded the streets

.

.

Sitting in your toasty home 

Cuddled safely beneath the sheets

.

.
