    Today I am concerned about
    What happens when you go to court
    How we get dehumanized
    In the fairness of justice

    How is it when heard
    That a grown woman
    Fears the very presence of her father
    What thought goes through the mind of jury

    That this decrepit man should face charges
    That stemmed from long ago
    How is this on the grand scale of things
    She who is I, still say daddy for God sakes

    What is to be believed in stories never told
    How he did to so many and none spoke
    There is shared disclosure
    Making one wonder who is the victim

    I just never knew at 45 I would be here
    Daughter to a man that felt entitled
    No mind bending chemicals in system
    What do you ask or say to questions never uttered

    That accountability was lost
    Your honor you do not understand
    The risk to suicide if I stand here
    I try not to punish myself anymore

    My life deserves liberty from this
    I worry about my mind and how incline I am to make a mistake
    Feel a mistake without it ever coming to bear fruit
    I just want to be someone else who has unbridled thoughts

    Will my father get 7 years for coming to my door
    My sentence was life and there was no evidence of a crime
    Except how my mind recoils into tortured spaces
    I am not really concerned about it
    Except for the new familial enemies I gain

    I just wonder if any understood
    30 years later is a hard place to stand
    For a story no one wants to remember
    In a court too overloaded

    This was deep poet
    A wonderful realism
    In the shadow of so much lust in poems
    Nice to hear the reality of life
