    As he touched her
    Guilt
    Self Disgust
    She died inside

    Still a virgin
    No longer a child
    Humilation
    He threatened to take her life

    Thinking
    Why God
    How could you let this happen
    Horror filled her

    When she told her mother
    She held her tight
    Cried with her
    Cradled her in her arms

    Reported it to the police
    Treated her like a criminal
    Not believing her
    She remained silent

    Hummm Dont Know
    Yet so many cases like this
    Its heart breaking to hear
    Or just to read my sister
    Deep sister very deep

    you know its sick at any age for a man to even think that young girls are ready for that. i talk to my kids everyday even tho there young to never keep something like this from me. they know noone is to touch anything on them including me. do you know how many women mentally later on in life are messed up. they don't know the difference between sex and love. they confused sex is love. and by the time they get the needed help some partners later you discover that the experience has caused so much pain and grief for you. i'm going to try to find my piece to keep this awareness going.
    and congrats again on you being the poet of the week!!!!!!!!:kiss1: :kiss1: :kiss1: :kiss1: :kiss1: :star: :star: :star: :star: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake: :cake:

    We wonder why our children are entering the adult stage at 10 and up, mainly because of people like this won't allow children to have their childhood. oh wow...smh
    yet it's so important to know that, without the Whole village raising our children...they can't survive.
    thanks for sharing facts poet.

    Wow, such a sad reality a child’s innocents can be snatched away, and often it by someone they trust. Thanks for sharing.

    A tale too often experienced, taking a slice of a girl's life away from her that she will never get back. I really liked the way you brought this.
