Little Girls Won’t Tell

Little Girls Won’t Tell

Little Girls

Nobody listened

Child molested once again.

Nobody listened,

Not even a friend.

The father whispers, ” little girls won’t tell,

Bruising happened

Because you fell.

That’s what you tell mama, do you hear? ”

She answered, ” Yes papa, ”

Cowering in fear.

The teacher looks, she doesn’t see.

Papa is Pastor,

Preaching Calvary.

Child matures into womanhood.

Drugs and liquor

Make her feel good.

Life wasted because of papa’s sin.

Little sister is maturing,

Soon will be ten.

Big sister makes a solemn vow

She’ll save her

And she knows how

A knife pierces his evil heart

Little sister safe

This world he’ll depart

Papa’s eyes follow as she leaves his bed

Moving swiftly back into the night

As he slowly drowns in liquid red.

    Hello John, I wrote this after reading a news article about a minister who sexually abused his daughter. It is tragic. Thank you for reading and leaving a complimentary comment and invitation to write on this site.

    Hey Ruby, welcome. This is a powerful and poignant work that is representative of an evil truth that so taints our days. I’ll never understand how anyone could hurt a child let alone sexually abuse. Well told and penned with stark and frightening imagery of a reality that is so often unrecognized until it is too late. Great work and hope you enjoy the site.

    Welcome to the site Ruby. Your work always leaves a message and this piece is no exception. I hear you loud and clear. I’ve lived through abuse, thankfully not sexual in nature. However my poor sisters did. He paid by death in the end. I and others celebrated upon hearing of that Demons demise. All rapists in my opinion should be castrated, tarred and featherd before going to prison for life without parole or condemned to death.
