Words:  inhumane, shame, suppress, line, wait, evil,
        spring, vote, water, hope, soul, race

Wait.  I know she
is next in line,
but I feel it would be
a shame to take her
now.  She was never inhumane
nor evil.  In fact, I do 
not know why you are racing
to suppress a soul
of whom you know little
about.  I should have
a vote.  There is great
hope for her.  You are
a wellspring of doom.
I am the pure water
to help her heal.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
