I wrote a short poem briefly touching over some issues I have with our society. These issues are mostly on my personal views but they're close to my heart and I strongly support them. I believe if people stop following and living such a "cookie cutter" lifestyle and mentality, they'll be able to see the world isn't so black and white. Life is complex and so are our problems. Enjoy.

I wrote this poem from personal experience. There was a pedophile, a "creepy old man" in the family and no one wanted to say anything. He had been harming several girls in his family for generations.This whole situation frustrated me and all I wanted was for him to suffer and for those girls to get the justice they deserved. Enjoy.
