A Letter To The Maker Of Laws


When a little girl decides to speak to the elderly
The elderly that would not listen even to their fellow elders
When she wants to take advantage of her innocent mind
To narrate to the high and mighty a story
A story of the suffering of a people to whom she belongs
When she cannot find the right means
Yet she cannot keep her worries to herself
When she finds a means she could use at least
And she calls it a letter
A letter she intends to give to the maker of laws
But she worries for her choice of language
She worries for her choice of words
Will the maker of laws find it offensive?
Will the maker of laws even understand her?
And will the maker of laws take action?
Yet she writes her worries down
She could not settle for silence
For to her that is equal to cowardice

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
