DENIED - By The Government
poem by Karen Belanger
Assembling Self

I plead though they ignore my cries.

The record's sealed is their reply.

Time and time again I ask.

I'm told to put it in the past.

I can't get them to try and see.

They have what belongs to me.

I beg for truth but no one hears.

It only falls upon deaf ears.

I get no matter how I try.

The same stone cold response
