MMIW

Red hand prints

Weeping sons and stolen sisters
Vanished like spoken whispers
Trafficked to unknown

And red hand prints

Police reports filed under apathy
Old photographs loving memory
Lost souls in bereavement

And red hand prints

New reports devoid of revelation
Police systems avoided reformation
Congress legislates in apathy

And red hand prints

Children without mothers
Isolation smothers
Nations still languish

And red hand prints

Red stains the sands
Death at cold hands
No witness found

And red hand prints

Swarms of locust arrive
Indigenous women stolen lives
Action seldom taken

Red hand prints
For the murdered and missing
For the lives of indigenous

Red Hand Prints
