Change begins with you

Bruise the flesh
with a wide array
of colors
from black n blue 
to purple and green...

Stiffen your neck
look the other way
for the lack of compassion 
in many abide

Ignore your fellow brother
show no mercy 
let the guilt eat you up inside
 
for with a simple
Is everything ok?
may I assist you in anyway?
could have saved someones life.

    Very direct and awesome way to explain, a poem with lots of feeling, nicely done Mrs. Barton.

    A true lesson is taught with this well written poem. Looking the other way has become a sign of the times we're in unfortunately...This is both a thoughtful and effective way to illustrate just how uncompassionate and erroneous this habitual behavior truly is. Good job here! MC
