Missing

SFoxWriting’s Alphabet Challenge ~ “M”

This is not at all what I intended to write about when this letter came around. However, a gut-wrenching image taken of the families of those missing aboard Malaysian Airlines 370 quickly changed my mind.

Conjecture
Reported as fact
Odious
Intention
Today’s impervious truth
Tomorrow denied

Fingers point
Accusations fly
Did it crash?
Did it land?
The agony of loved ones
Is not the story

Grim faces
Twist in agony
Used to sell
Articles
Grieving images stolen
Yet stories untold

Too wrapped up
In the mystery
The intrigue
The missteps
Our humanity is lost
When empathy fails
