Unexpected Hero(ine)

When do people notice?
When do they stop?
When do they finally see…..
pain
agony
black death
spreading across lands
decimating
not only the small
the weak
even those with the mightiest roars…..
silenced.
Sonnets of love
written with the prose of politics
serenading maidens false
doweries
impossible to keep
promised…..
in return
sell away her maidenhead
highest buyer wins.
Debase
degrade
demean
truth
honesty
justice
punch lines in a joke
the world does not yet get.
Flacid
immune
passive
society bows.
Who will rise up?
Who will take lead?
Who will prove their worth
knocking down those
who play at being almighty?
Save the lost maiden
blinded
restoring virtue
value
purity
mayhap all is not lost?
In the forest
none can see
for looking at the trees
came a hero
(heroine)
unexpected
unreceived.

A little girl

There is a little girl inside of me

one that no one can see

she peers out from her safe place

where the monsters cannot reach.

She hunkers down when the winds blow

singing silly songs and rhymes

trying to still the terror in her heart,

to cleanse her mind.

Flowers adorn the cabin floor

sweet smells to compete with her giggles

for safety is found

in this haven.

There is a little girl inside of me

one that no one can see

she protects that small part of me

that is still innocent

and untouched or sullied.
