    Painful message Mary. My heart cries for you and your daughter. Keep writing; this is your refuge; your voice is being heard...Lay

    These abuses are so hard to deal with and overcome. Your daughter can move on with love and support. It's especially hard when people you trust betray that trust in such a life altering and painful way. This poem brings the personal factor to abuse. Our nation needs to be a lot tougher on people that commit these crimes. My thoughts and prayers go with you and your daughter. Best wishes in the healing process. Take care. Karen

    Mary, a very heartfelt powerful write here. My grandson and very young granddaugher, only age 3, were molested in their neighborhood this past summer by older boys. So it's now the young molesting the very young. It is a terrible circle that can't seem to be broken. thanks for your wonderful comment on my Imaginist poem and I agree with you. We need variety. I also love funny poets! LUv, andrea

    Mary, this is a brave piece of writing to say the least. There are crimes, and there are crimes. If i was in power, crimes of this nature are against nature and i would never allow a rapist free when caught. In fact i would castrate them. If you don't want to do the time, don't do the crime. Vile they are, and vile they remain. In any society, they leave their stain >> James

    Well you are right -it is a constant battle with the judicial system to do what it takes to stop these intolerable crimes from reoccuring. It many times seem as though the victim has less rights. Common sense is no longer a factor. Loop holes and technicalities are all the rage and this outrageous system seems to win and justice loses as a result of disrespect for life And your poem crime is just one faction of it all. Well you really got me goin on this one, Mary. -Robert

    You chose a very productive way to cope with the attack on your daughter. How sad it was perpetrated by someone you knew and trusted. This appears to occur in many cases. I hope this poem's message is heard and understood by many readers. You really are a terrific writer, Mary, and I've enjoyed our exchanges. Love, carolyn
