In A Crowd

Standing alone in a crowd

Begging forgiveness from those

Whose life means nothing

To the one standing at the gallows.

Unrelenting details of life

That death wouldn’t keep track of.

Unsteady on her feet

She begs to stop everything;

But nothing stops.


The burning ache within

Holds itself accountable

For all she lost

Nothing she gained

Through the trials of life.


She doesn’t value her own life

It isn’t for her she screams.

She yells for all the women walked on every day

The ones that couldn’t fight him off,

That took the slap to the face,

The horrible words,

The lying and cheating..

She screams

For you.
