Paying The Price

a cornered gurl

Little pretties

Legs closed
To sin
Have their
Youth stolen
In seconds
By fire-breathing
Dragons in

Humans’ clothing

Children are little bits of magic. How anyone can defile them, murder their sweet souls, and rape them of their hearts, bodies, and minds is beyond my understanding. I have zero tolerance for that mess. It’s a horrible abomination and every inch of me tightens when I hear of anything of the sort.

A former clinical social worker, I am a research administrator, writer and artist. I started writing fiction and poetry in my pre-teen years and most recently have been writing essays at the intersection of popular culture, politics, world events and my personal experience. I take the world seriously but believe that the ability to laugh at myself is essential to my survival. I am rediscovering myself at 50 after being defined primarily by my roles for the last 18 years. I refuse to be invisible. I honor my voice. I write because I have to.
