Mother / Sexual Corruption



Enormity is in you

You hold the purity and beauty of the realm

You are warm and loving

Because that is expected of you


Light which glows and shines through your face and smile

When your children blow ferocity

You are always there to acknowledge

What it is they have done


Your akin is rare

Only now when you are no longer treasured

What has become of that you bore?

Not to protect you but to wage war


What will become of our tomorrow

My 12 year old

In you, still a child

Yet to be deflowered but yet being preyed by many


Who will nurture my tomorrow?

For today is fouled

Fullness to emptiness

A brother, father, uncle sees in me a wife


I ache for what has become of my own

My children vultures on me

Our child, our girl, our daughter



It is all in her

The one which you have connived to saunter on

My 12 year old
