the young and condemned

She  is young and wants to be educated, but no money;

She is young and wants to be employed, but no job;

She is young and wants to be housed, but no shelter;

She is young and wants to be safe, but  male violence is always.

She is her mother’s daughter though,

and father’s daughter;

Indeed, she is her grandmothers and grandfather’s granddaughter, her aunty’s and uncle’s niece, her cousin’s cousin and her friend ‘s friend;

but by her country…she is condemned.
