For Sierra LaMar

They gaze out at us

pretty girls, smiling

curled hair, eyes crinkled in joy

staring out from signs

hung on telephone poles

showcased on evening news shows

lost, missing, missed girls

grieved by those left behind.

May they find her soon and may her family find closure.

    this poem is amazing. You captured me with the joy at the begining so effectively that I was floored a moment later that my heart wrentched whenI realized what your poem was actually about. Sad and beautiful, and yes, I wish they all came home.
