Evil’s Acceptance

This poem was inspired by a post on Bitchin’ in the Kitchen . The post Why I’ll Never Use Twitter Again had me shaking and crying by end. Given my past I cannot allow this to pass without comment. And I thank Britchy for bringing it to my attention. I am not going to pontificate but this is wrong…this is pure evil….

Jay-lyn  Dec. 6/19

There are many faces
facets
for evil
hiding in plain sight
allowed with passive complacency
by those who need to do better.
Children sexualized.
Men
women
allowed to do so
with legitimacy
on social platforms.
No voices raised. 
No shouts of dismay.
Quiet changes
deep within the fine print
allows malignant growth
of ideas
that must not 
cannot see the light of day.
Have you heard the cries?
Have you heard the devastation?
Screams of pain
dark despair
wishes of death
dancing within a child’s head?
When hurting oneself
only so not to feel
not to care
is the only way out
the only way to cope with all that fear.
Let me lead you down the winding path
carved
inked upon my psyche
my skin
show you the death of innocence
the turning inward
the anger
the rage.
It took me years to overcome.
Imagine now
shattered bodies
those unable to break free
who took their lives
who took the lives of others
to satisfy a sick desire.
We must resist this growing tide
this evil that is coiling
insidious with its reach
for should we ignore
chose ignorance
a reaping will take place.
