Poetry Corner – Missing

Something is missing

In this world.

Men domineer and

Women hate themselves –

Children cry because

They are alone,

Because they are hungry,

Because they are hurt.

Boys think it’s okay

To be a misogynist,

To disrespect their elders,

And that killing is cool.

Girls think they need

To diet in first grade,

To be cruel to others,

To objectify themselves.

Young men won’t speak out

When what they see is wrong.

Young women are afraid

To live alone.

Men won’t seek help

When they know they need it.

Women suffer in silence

As they are neglected.

Old men and women wait

For visitors that won’t come.

Something is missing

In this world.
