I Grieve…

I grieve not for me I grieve for thee

I grieve for the people who will lose their health insurance

I grieve for the littles that must face a warming Earth

I grieve for the girls who could face a world of back allies and coat hangers

I grieve for the world

I grieve for action not taken, for a climate warming

I grieve for the girls in a world where sexual assault is “locker room talk”

I grieve for women where sexual harassment will mean “you should change careers”

I grieve for women who should be paid the same as men

I grieve for people who should be paid enough to live

I grieve for those of color who face a world where “all lives matter” but THEIRs do NOT

I grieve for those who will be seen as other and different and so lesser

I grieve for the First Nations fighting for their sacred lands

I grieve for the First Nations fighting for OUR water

I grieve for the First Nations fighting for treaty rights

I grieve for the littles who will go hungry

I grieve for the littles who have no President to look up to

I grieve for facts

I grieve for science

I grieve for acceptance

I grieve for a media that is free and fair and balanced

I grieve for thee and I grieve for us all
