Happy Mother’s Day: a quick poetic read

Something is wrong with mama
She looks different, sitting up there
She’s not supposed to be contained, all contained
like that.
She used to spill out everywhere
Her smile, her laughter, her quirks
All over the place.

Now the porcelain, fragile orb
Contains all…

Heart-breaking, frusterating, and sad that many of us aren't aware of some of the atrocities happening on our planet!!! My heart completely goes out to Ukraine and I am so happy it is getting visibility, but it begs the question of why other conflicts do not receive the same media attention :(

When Gabby Petito went missing and I learned (well finally realized & acknowledged is more accurate) about the paucity of news coverage for missing persons of color vs cute, white girls- I was kind of blown away and felt guilty/horrible/embarrassed for our country..... I wonder if world conflicts receive media attention (or not) based on similar factors??
