Social Justice Poetry

superficiality poems

Insatiable | A Social Justice Poem by Tara Lynn Hawk

We spend and hoard
Ourselves into blind oblivion
Take a pill for any minor discomfort
Seek the product that will make us new
Beautiful, acceptable
Disregard our mortality
Aspiring permanence
Take more than we need
Realizing too late
Our legacy in
The young
