Ravished By Her Guardian

Once an innocent child, was ravished by her guardian
I beseech thee keep not thy yam with a goat.
Ada is a comely teenage with an excellent mind
But to pluck a lovely flower is to kill it
It is not love, no. Ada faced a humiliation unwarranted
Don't force urine down my throat because I urinate 
Now, each way she goes, the wind proudly flaunts
High the garment of shame
Uche has carved a scar in her tender heart
With a red-hot iron, even the hotness is like unto hell
All-consuming as it first began
Now she is strongly distrustful of men
Her Heart is yet to forgive his sin
It pains so bad that her heart cries in the silence of the night
It pains so bad that her heart mourns in the brightness of a new day
She seriously wonders what life is
She ask in her heart, why this should be
What wrong she has done
Why at her feet the world should collapse
She wonders if she could ever forgive
A man who took a pride she had consciously guarded.

    Very moving and sad! Many women have been victimized by this awful crime. It affects psychologically but the victim can redeem her image. Thanks for sharing this sad story with us.

    A fine piece my friend in defence of a friend. But she is not the only one in the world who has been wrongly used this way. She is NOT damaged material unless she allows it to damage her. She has done NOTHING wrong. He has and God will punish him for it. She can gain back the dignity he stole from her. She is BETTER than him. She is a VICTIM, NOT A SINNER. God will help her. God Bless, JB
