To Never Be

RISE (Rape Incest & Suicide Education) -Under Construction!


Clutched dandelion - so brilliant in the wind
three years old - robbed of innocence

A story unfolds in mind

scarred truth beyond a smile
pretty in brilliance
the meadows sway in sunlight
cameras never to capture this scene

Sacred silence lathers
screaming burns from the couch
welt scars on her legs
tears forbidden, rage evolves
as bruises take their shape

Nothing more than normalcy broken
spirit screams sleeping in fears of dreams
mid-day horror, blamed upon this child
broken recollection

Fields of persuasion

representation amidst
caught mindset at three

to never be

I am who?
