National Poetry Day Message Poem by Olivia McCammon

To a helpless criminal

.

Blood and poverty drowns us,

yet in the blanket of darkness

stars of hope still shine on me.

.

Death is the water that turns

a magnificent fire of life

into black ash.

My family lost their flame,

the day they turned away from the stars.

.

My silver lights may still be shining

but they will darken without you,

this is a message to a lazy criminal

that has a heart of stone,

this is a message to you.

.
