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.
