“Expected to be ok”

That awkward phrase presented after a sensational story is depicted on the news.


How can someone be ok when they have been hit by a stray bullet?

Abducted by a maniac?

Abused by those who were in charge of their care?


Taunted by school mates to the point of depression?

Witness to a war that can never be won?

Punished for speaking their truth?


Disregarded because they look differently?

Disrespected by those who are supposed to love them most?

Misjudged by their gender, race or religion?


These people may be alive; but they will never be ok.
