Dicentra spectabilis

Her heart bleeds

for the children
whose lives are cut short
for the parents
who lost them,
and the ones
who still will

for the families
who fear for their lives
and their homes
who have nowhere to run
and no one willing
to take them in

for the ones
who are different
bullied, badgered, beaten,
and treated as less
by their peers
and the law

for those
whose voices linger
unheard, ignored,
unheeded, disbelieved
despite the truth
of their words

May she ever endure
may she rise
and bloom still
so long as she can

so she will
