Cover Up - Poem by ashley delgado

Peaceful as the sky can be
shiny as the stars can be
dark as the night can be
al covers
what happens at night
not so peaceful
not so shiny
the night is dark
dark as can be
its plain to see
you hear the screams
why turn nd look away
a life that could have been saved
a cry for help
heard around the world
we hear
we look
yet turn away
walk away peaceful as the sky can be
a scream heard
forced to turn away
shiny as the stars can be
you look shrug your shoulders
walk away turn away
dark as the night can be
dark as we all can be

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was watching a movie where everyone saw this girl getting beat. no one said anything they heard her scream but they continued to just go in their house and pretend nothing went on. Then I realized this happens in real life as well. people are to scared to stand up and be a witness. many lives can be saved if people would speak up
