    down on alondra blvd.
    between avalon and central
    in compton,
    she holds memories
    of early years when
    her family first moved out here

    ...she was an only child
    a lonely child
    and sistuh Idola
    was the trusted babysitter
    from the church

    but the sistuh's teen age
    son musta didn't
    know the lord

    ...it was
    the first time she
    ever saw a man's
    thang

    he was a sick nasty....
    cuz she was only about 7

    but something told her
    it wasn't right what he
    was trynna do

    she had never seen
    her own daddy's privates

    so when she had the
    presence of mind to tell
    his mama
    he was "bothering her"
    he never showed hisself again

    night after night after that,
    she would give him dirty
    knowing looks
    and he knew he
    couldn't do nothing

    *******

    their paths still cross
    every now and then

    life is funny that way

    he can't look her
    in the eyes to this day

    cause he knows
    she knows he
    did her cousin
    while his wife was
    in the hospital

    and she's even had his
    little girl in her
    class in school

    oh, he's kept his
    mess all up in the
    family....

    but he's divorced now...

    private torment
    is a *****...
    payback is a dirty dawg

    but whenever
    she sees his old
    horny ***
    she still waves & smiles
    and says a loud "hey now!"
    to the first d...ck
    she ever saw

    the beauty of these words...is that an adult listened when a child spoke of such things...many don't and that just makes a sad situation so much sadder....

    Alyce,

    A sad family secret.

    I agree with $RICH$, cept I wanna add, [email protected] that needs treatment, preferably shock treatment to both heads

    Never dismiss always investigate for the sake of the child.
    Nice flo.....especially discovering she escaped a sick situation that could've haunted her for a lifetime.

    Madd Holiday Greetings :heart:

    thanks

    Rich...the Lord was definitely in this.

    Kemet...sho you right!

    Ms. Kitana...you said it...and this is why I know there is a God.

    Ms. D. Storm...and the saga continued in varying degrees for Butch, for many years. Thank you for diggin it.

    Ms. Ladee... I know. :heart:

    Ms. Hunter....I C what you mean....it was probably the first time she realized she held a certain kind of "power" in her frilly anklets.

    Ms. Cocobutterskyn...shock treatment to both heads!!! Fo sho! Probably would have prevented him from the evil he did inflict on others later....

    ...the images are not as ugly as they could have been...but like everything that happens to us in life, it has left its mark on her.

    thanks for feelin it.

    a
