Sprawled near-naked on cold pavement, in shock and petrified,
Believing at that moment it'd be better had she died!
Her mind and spirit shattered - through swollen lids she cried.
Just sixteen years of age, buying Christmas gifts for friends,
One man's crazed obsession means another childhood ends.
As her brain begins to function - she feels for her phone,
Dials 911 - this small effort makes her moan.
Blackened eyes and bloodied - at least one broken bone,
Yet all she can remember - is the stench of his cologne!
Sixteen years old, her future bright - top of her class in school,
The world was her oyster - how could fate be so cruel?
Police, bright lights, hard questions - a rape kit and a smear,
Wishing she could curl up and simply disappear.
Her horror indescribable whence the Doctor makes it clear,
Sixteen years old, so sheltered - trusted Justice, Truth and God,
Finding out the hard way that the System's badly flawed!
Disgusted and appalled - this much she knows for sure,
A rapist's seed inside her - would never be endured!
Yet Sunday's Sermon speaks of LIFE - Each Precious, Blessed, and Pure,
It's meant to be - don't question it. His wrath you shall incur!
Sixteen years old, just barely - loved her Country, Kin and Church,
Needing empathy and guidance - yet they left her in the lurch!
Once sparkling with potential - eyes now a vacant stare,
Ostracized and shunned for ending the nightmare.
Revolt and shame her life-mates - the sentence so unfair,
Zygote staunchly defended - The woman?
Not a Prayer!
Long LIVE Roe v. Wade...
