LOOK AWAY

LOOK AWAY I see the children hurting; I feel their pains aborting; I just ignore them; And when the time comes As danger surrounds them I just turn my head NO acknowledgement I just turn my head, my back as I just I just look away I see these bullying; I see those scars and bruising; Feels as though there’re continually losing; I close mine eyes, (ignoring) I just close my mind And as I look away I’m ashamed of me this day I pray….. And when the time comes As danger surrounds them I just turn my head NO acknowledgements I just turn my head, my back as I just I just look away 11/21/18 Written words by James Edward Lee Sr.©2018
