Left Behind

No mother should be left behind
without her children—
in another country
she was cut off, no interaction

what dishonor it means not having children come

It is also about humanity.
BUT I SEE NO SIGN OF HUMANITY WITH ANYONE.
To have other connections
which is essential in this world

Who understands about all of this
bombarded from all sides
my face hung in shame.
Did anyone stand up for me?
