    Shouts of protests
    Quickly fade
    Into yesterday's news
    But her parents' pain
    Ignites daily, for them
    Every tomorrow promises the same
    Her screams of fear
    Ring louder in their ears
    Another child tragically lost
    Murders wander bravely, not at all coward
    Yet today's headline exhaults
    celebrity infidelity and politicians' tweets.
    The world moves forward while humanity weeps.
