Never Again

Vapid
emotionless
a void where hearts should be
assaulted
on a daily basis
with the evils of this world.
Children dying in the dust
turned into murderers
rapists
turned into ravenous wolves
baying into the future.
Women knocked to the ground
raped
impregnated
with the seeds of dissent
with fear
rising up
calling for change.
Scaring
misogynistic
elite
entitled
old men
now hunted into extinction.
Gnawing
chewing on the bones
gorging on immorality
swallowing piece by piece
the tainted seas.
No moreย 
never again
will children rape
will women fall
beaten into submission.
No more
never again
will innocents be prey…..
to the pressure
to the desires
to the sordid fingers
of the depraved.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
