God is listening!

It chilled my soul,

cos I could see their goal,

dominating women,

and then,

push them into dark corners

make their lives more onerous

beat them black and blue

tell them what to do,

while they gloat and glower

and boasting of their power

boiling their own souls.


It chilled my soul,

cos I saw the ugly foul

staining and spreading

when a man a child weds.

I am lost for words, as their

evil beds

are places for children’s terror,

violation and horror.

It chills me still when I stop and think

of the millions of girls on the brink

of all the good that God has given them

to find it stolen by a knife

by women, by life,

by their family,

to grimly  live with the hurt,

to satisfy the lust of a pervert.


Yet, good men suffer too,

as they stand up against you,

as they feel your shame,

and call out your name,

place the blame,

of your monstrous sinning,

knowing that God is hearing

to the weeping of girls and women.

margins are a great place sometimes because it is where change happens fastest but it is also a horrible place when we are stuck in them and grace is the moment when we can see that someone cares.
