Sinners To The Victims


In a life of pain and wonder
nothing is what it seems
everything is shrouded by mystery
like a man not wanting to be found

Oh lord I listen and I listen
I try and I try
but there's always something
round the corner wanting to tell me more

Sinners to the victims
why can't everyone be normal
and lead a normal life

Their children's children
don't stand a chance
they started a chain
that can't be broken

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes victims are just too scared to do anything, so the sinner gets away to sin again.
If somebody tells me I try to help, but I can only do so much.

    The helplessness of the subject of this poem is painfully palpable. I really like the compassion and the intimation that we are all both the archers and the targets of the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, to quote Shakespeare. Well done. (Report) Reply

    This was a painful read, I don't know why but I just find this slightly troubling, what is normal, still a good write (Report) Reply

    The sinner should turn around and repent of their wicked ways and also ask Gods
    forgiveness just like the victims. When it rains or shines it falls on the just as well
    as the unjust. Victims do not grow weary of well doing for in due time you will reap
    just what you sow. Very inspiring write Dave. (Report) Reply

    This poem is a nice piece. Meaningful thoughts. People oustside are passing a life full of nothing. Really, where are we going? We must start to learn and see new things in life. I agree there are so many injustice. Very well Dave (Report) Reply

    unfortunately in any form of pain little children are always caught in the cross fire and at times are blamed.. agreed with Mr. Thomas just being aware and saying some words either of kindness or to snap others out of ignorance, helps all victims (Report) Reply

    The only answer I have to this problem is, what goes around comes around! !
    The wrongdoers have to pay in the end, thats what I believe!
    Excellent write! (Report) Reply

    A powerful poem Dave. Life throws up so many unanswered questions.
    The scales of justice seem to favour the wrongdoer and not the victim. (Report) Reply

    Victims stunned into silence is the norm whilst sinners act with impunity. A good write (Report) Reply

    Oh lord I listen and I listen
    I try and I try
    but there's always something
    round the corner wanting to tell me
    more
    a beautiful write
    we r yet at unconcious stage when we attain conciousness we will b superman (Report) Reply

    Thanks for raising your voice against the sinners.Rabindranath Tagore wrote a poem on it.One who commits sin and the other who endures it should be hated by all.They are equally committing crime. (Report) Reply
