Child’s dilema

Children

Young teens

Hoping, yearning, breaking

World’s shattering, Father’s rejection

Love faces her baby’s starvation.

Cultural complacency, allowing men’s bestial roar

Who weeps when all carry untold sorrow?

Despair’s solutions open doorways to death

Seeking freedom, finding tortuous chasms

Quietly enduring perceived destiny.

Choking Hope’s whisper

Still waiting

When?
