I wasn’t there . . .

Dear Editor,

I wasn’t there
… But my child was
I wasn’t there
… But teachers were.
I wasn’t there
… But I got the text.
I wasn’t there
… But I raced to the school
I wasn’t there
… but watched the police run.
I wasn’t there
… but broke as I waited.
I wasn’t there
I just wasn’t there.
(Please be open to asking for help, Even if you weren’t there.)
