Looking through my computer yesterday, I came across this poem. I wrote it a while ago as part of an English assignment. I hope you enjoy it!

The Universal Injustice, by Jordanne Babcock

I hear their silent voices
Screaming out for hope
Women and their children
Taken from their home
Wondering where
Wondering when
How
Who
Why

Having no answers
Only questions
And when they know
What will become of their life
Or what once was their life
They wish that they had never wondered

I hear her wordless mourning
Crying out for help
A woman and her body
Seeing no way out
Wondering where
Wondering when
How
Who
Why

Having no answers
Only questions
And when she knows
What will become of her life
Or what once was her life
She wishes that she had never wondered

I hear it all
It is the same
Screaming mourning cry
Of the woman or the child
In the call house or the streets
Wondering where
Wondering when
How
Who
Why

Having no answers
Only questions
And when they know
What will become of their life
Or what once was their life
They wish that they had never wondered.
