Beyond Repair - Poem by Susan Ash

How is it that
Not one among
Them had a conscience?

Not one was ashamed for
Her humiliation or
The pain she endured!

Not one saw her as
The helpless, fragile,
Child she was!

Not one saw her as
Someone’s daughter,
Maybe someone’s sister!

They all but destroyed
Her chances of being
Someone’s wife.

They took away her right
To motherhood,
Damaged her beyond repair!

She was a runaway,
Lost and lonely.
She was fifteen

    Almost painful to read, the verse is vivid and it makes us hate that 15 year olds suffer in the world we have created. I'm glad I got a chance to read this poem. I hope to read more of your work in the future. (Report)Reply
