to women in turkey//a poem

inspired by the #challenge accepted on instagram.

to women everywhere
every day
wondering if your face
will be the next or
wondering what will be left
for you if loved ones disappear
I am so sorry for the fear that engulfs your day to day life
and I pray that you will find
a way to thrive
even in the black and white
between what is now and what is right.
