To My Rapist

       
           Fragment images illumined
                  A hostile sight of no mercy
           Found no escape, I was destined
                  A scheme of darkest scenery
                          Entrapped with hugs and kisses - sour
                          A final dot of final hour.

            If you have mercy set me free
                   Still a captive of disgrace
            A minor holding no degree
                    You wasted with a proudly face
                           How could you close the door and left me?
                           Thinking okay, ignoring my plea

             What a view to see you dying
                     A soulful music to my ears
              Is it really satisfying
                     When dignity's stolen with fears?
                            My life has been a poor attempt
                            To live away with your contempt.

    Those who stain the innocent with the vilest motives will surely have VIP passes to the furnace of living flames.

    Thanks kapatid, Nette! I'm very well. Hope you are too. Feeling sad lang sa mga kababayan natin na affected ng Yolanda! Dimo talaga mapipigilan umiyak at gumawa ng paraan para makatulong. Sana okay kalang if you're here in the Philippines. Bless you, kapatid! Love,love,love! :-) - Den

    I say, "No" to child abuse and molestation. Its a misery for a child to overcome. Who's to blame? They deserve a gift of love and security. Love,love,love! :-) - Den
