I Write Poetry About Love

I Write Poetry About Love

I write poetry about love
also about friendship, and
Who am I fooling anyway?
Why don't I get to the core of the mater and write about the ugliness?
of our world
What comes to your mind?
Well, this is what I came up with
Child molestation,
Burns me up.
A thousand years ago, 
Among the Greeks or Romans, perhaps it was ok then,
But not now!
We have come a long way
I never dreamed there were so many monsters,
I never understood why a parent holds their child's hand 
so tight 
Mothers know.
Mother had seen much
And perhaps they have experienced it so,
I say why!
Some say it is  in our churches that priest molest children, 
how could this be.
To kill them is too good for them
Ostracize or even castrates them
But do something!
Ok, I feel good that I mentioned this 
Since it's a reality.
After today I will go back to my poems with rainbows flowers and love
And I will feel good about myself that I for once took up a cause.
I hope I have helped you to understand.
