Listening to a true crime podcast,
Because I never want to be too comfortable.
I think of the criminal, so called,
And wonder what they would feel
if their family were victims?
What would happen if children,
Before school became a burden,
Were asked to sit with uncomfortable feelings.
With a simple question,
Can you imagine how it feels???
We want to make children stronger,
But we leave this gapping weakness
So that when feelings overpower,
We are helpless to them,
And thus there is no shortage
Of true crime podcasts.
