When No One Cares - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Tears flow from her heart
Unhindered by the silence in her world
The absence of comforting voices
Rips through her hurting heart
Exposing her already fragile spirit
To the memories of a loveless world
A careless world that stand still
Unaware of her tormented life

Her dreams stolen by strangers
Her life abandoned by those she loved
Because no one really cares
Cares about her loss of virginity
To a violent act of rape
At a tender age of twelve
Because no one really cares
Cares about her dead parents
Slaughtered by a brutal gang of political despots
Because no one really cares
Cares about her impending suicide
Because no one cares

    Very intense and heart wrenching poem, I do care about her, about all those girls who are being brutally maimed and raped, it is a travesty achieved by men letting their lust take over their minds. They are the scum of this earth and need to die. This poor young girl needs to be avenged so other girls and women do not receive the same fate as she did. If men were castrated one by one this could be taken care of, but the best thing is for these evil demons is to die for women everywhere to live their lives in total freedom from man's perversions. Thank you for sharing this honest and truthful depiction of poor girls and women, lets start eliminating this problem once and for all across the world. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
