In Court

Share it Please
Haiku Friday

Her desperation
is real, solid and pungent
alive and painful

Her days no longer
relaxing, no escape from
terrible shadows

As air thickens, I
try to imagine never
being truly free

Comprehension fades,
fear invades reality
my reality

Frustration, anger
confusion, no solution
it seems so unfair

If I could have one
wish today, I'd sweep her up
her daughter too and

we would fly away
somewhere sunny, no more fear
or glances behind

I can't take her though
and today the system shows

Her desperation
won't end here, all I can do
is pray for mercy

So sad and melancholy yet beautiful at the same time.

I wish I could do Haiku. But I don't have the patience. So I guess I'll just enjoy yours!

Is that about something you encountered in your new calling? How sad...
