San Francisco crash

My thoughts for this blog emerged in verse–for better or worse.

 

Will I ever not hear my mother’s voice

screaming for her baby girl

whenever I hear of a plane crash?

 

Now San Francisco etched in my mind

two young girls lost

just looking for an American summer.

Parents screaming for their baby girl.

 

“Why” is on our lips,

but what does that matter really?

A tough decent,

an unskilled landing.

lives tossed like dice.

 

“So many survived”

media voices eager to

put a good face on the day.

 

Safest way to travel.

Still.

 

But many shaken to their core

“critical” mumbled beside “survivors.”

Remember them too.

A mother screaming for her baby girl.
