Prey Upon the Innocent

I read your words
not sure I really understood
so I read them again
to absolutely make sure
and I wonder…..
are you truly that stupid?
did someone read what you planned to say before you said it?
in what warped world do you live in; 
where you cite that the situation is more complicated…..
than the pedophile priest.
Priest or nun
given an overinflated sense of self
called to a higher power
giving them the right
to maim
to torture
to sexualize
to betray
belief and trust.
They know not a god
but the raging devil
that is who is to blame!
shouted from the rooftops.
Less shouting
more whispering
taking over
taping shut
any who dared to complain.
How many deaths
how many addictions
how many abuses
may I lay at the door of your church?

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
