Daughter's Tears


She cries, invisible tears flowing from her heart goes unanswered
She hates him, a man rubbing and flirting – using a child’s innocence
The man with a hell lot of girlfriends, an avarice beast in disguise
Why does this rogue come into her life, what was her sin?
Did she pray to have him in his life or is he a curse from God?
His demonic hands and impish eyes roaming- who will tame it?
If his mother or sisters loved to be immoral, why a good wife
Is God so cruel or he wanted to make a different story
Seeing the confused and scared eyes of the little child exploited,
She smiles at the slogan “Respect your parents”
Her tears turn into anger, to tear up her dads face
She shouts, ”Cant you see your daughter in every woman
Doesn’t this sin buy you Gods wrath and why am I like my mom?
Is it right or wrong? ”. Her voice echoes every nook and corner
But the demonic winds swallows every little word- the breeze
enveloping her with silence mourns with her
The breeze goes helpless against the mighty wind.

    God is not the one who puts a curse. We are deceived by demonic powers In high places.
    God is Spirit and without faith we cannot please Him. That does not mean you are cursed
    simply put your faith not your works sets you free. Bathe in the Light of Christ and your
    demons will flee. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
