    At the age of 12 her
    Childhood suddenly ended
    Snatched away in the blink
    Of an eye it’s a **** shame
    No one heard her cry
    Until the 35 year old bastard
    Ripped her insides

    She was...

    Brutalized

    Sodomized

    Left for dead in the streets
    Will she ever be the same
    They say since she has the mental
    Capacity of a 2 year old it may
    Be blocked from her frontal
    Lobes…

    How could you be so cruel
    What did she ever do to you
    I’ll be glad when they catch
    You so a big *** muthafuka
    Will make you his *****


    I did not know the young lady in which this is based upon. As I sat in my doctor's office I picked up bits and pieces. The look of anguish on her mother's face was all to knowing. I didn't think about it until I read Ra's piece "Intrusion". I have experienced rape both directly and indirectly. We all know someone, or know of someone that this has happened to . Like my brotha said this happens way to often. To all my sisters and brothers out there, be encouraged.

    Yeah

    call me stupid or what ever but it really shouldn't be that way. I mean this man has children her age. That's like he was doing that to his own daughter and ohhhh don't get me started on that "taboo".

    Gurl you took me back to

    my 12th year...this is definately an f'd up situation. Especially when you know the violator (s). With prayer and emotional/moral support this child and her family will be okay.

    I am a witness.

    In my own humble opinion...what makes a good writer/poet..is the ability to turn oneself inside out...to see the universality of the human condition on the faces of men and women....

    You searched that poor mother's face for signs of wisdom...and knowing...then you turned yourself inside out and shook the truth from the roots of its' foundations....

    there is nothing left to say that your conscious verses have not already said

    Just know that I am forever changed by these lines..and that I bow my head in meditation

    chilling

    Ms. Zorbshun....
    I, too, know the devastation of rape and other abuses through the tearful testimonies of too many mothers and daughters I serve daily. It never gets easier to deal with the despicable disease of abuse that is so rampant in our society. Its affects run deeper than we can imagine. I could write a book and still would not exhaust the horrific accounts.... and my recommendations for dealing with perpetrators.... well.... not even humanitarian, for a person in my line of work.

    I gets emotional.

    Thank you for bringing this one, sis.

    a

    Fri- I know gurl. I just wish like hell she didn't have to go through that

    Hunter- this one really turned me inside out in a big way. I went way back in the recesses of my afterthoughts, which I thought were buried along with my intruder. I saw me where that 12-year-old sat. I on the other hand was much older but yet in my womanhood, I was reduced to a small child asking why.

    Ms. A- I don't know how but stay encouraged and continue to do what you do. We all appreciate it in one way or another. Stay strong my beautiful sista and continue the fight, because this to shall pass.

    I know both males and females who have gone through this and I think an eye for an eye is an appropriate punnishment and in casses like the historic Scotsboro boys the same should be done those who would falsely accuse. understanding the life long devistating effect that this act has on its victims makes the crime even more horrible.
