learning-life : helplessness

she was hit repeatedly, by her own mother. then stripped to be bathed… in a public ground. the cops were nearby, they saw it happen. they heard many complain. yet nothing happened. the girl was helpless, our little group who protested outnumbered by the large number of her gypsy family. by the time we returned later, they had gone elsewhere.
my words are but words, my feelings but feelings. if they were not, i would not have felt that helplessness when something that i strongly go against unfolded right before me and i was powerless to stop it.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  3. thanks, KP. Yeah, really sad. It's a time when we realize we can't do much if the parents aren't themselves bothering to understand the child.
