It’s here to stay

By: Abisola F.

Something pierced the skin

The skin is broken

All the attention is turned to it

A bandage is needed

The bandage covers the skin

The wound is still there

It takes time to heal

Another bandage is needed

The wound is mostly healed

You go on with life

Only to find another wound

A month later

Violence impacts society

Lives are in danger

All the attention is turned to it

Compassion is needed

Compassion masks some violence

The violence is still there

It takes time to go away

More compassion is needed

The violence is mostly gone

You go on with life

Only to find more violence

A month later

Compassion can only go so far

It creates help

Help saves lives

But not everyone can be helped

We try to deny it

But the truth is

Violence will never go away

Violence is here to stay
