Abused

She cried until she died
The court stole her cry

This poem tells the story of my niece who died and the spouse hired people to steal the docket and he came out scot free. A very touching poem on abuse and the powerlessness of women before the law.
Amazing. You convey an entire tragic life in just two lines. There is both profound truth and profound sadness in these words.
beautiful short and sweet poem conveying the terrible cry of innocent girl who is abused.... so strong is this poem in its short verses. tony
