Something in That World

by Molly, 14
St. Andrew's Episcopal School, Austin, Texas

 

Someone in that nursing home
Someone in that natural disaster
Someone in that rehab center
Someone in that minimum-wage job
Someone in that foster home 
Someone in that divorce court
Someone in that war
Someone in that prison 
Someone in that homeless shelter
Someone in that shooting 
Someone in that cancer clinic
Someone in that crash
Someone in that school being bullied
Someone in that bathroom cutting herself

Someone in that world alone
