Incest Prayer

Poem By Keri Jopplin

Jesus was born for us to believe,
The same as children, why can't we be!
I was born to live, love and dance;
To hold my head high, my walk a prance.

For children of love, it's why we are born.
Not for sex or some damn porn!
Jesus came from Joseph and Mary.
My parents gave me the proud name of Keri.

Just like Jesus we're sacrificed too,
By uncles and fathers to name a few.
Living on hope and the wing of a prayer;
Jesus is love, Jesus does care!

This is for those who used and abused.
I use no names, I haven't accused.
This is the truth as I write no lie,
I'll cross my heart and hope to die!

We haven't forgave them and we haven't forgot,
Jesus has to forgive for we cannot!
This is my prayer and it's read in dedication.
For I was a victim of child molestation.

Snow Whispers

She dances upon snow gone lost in her dreams,
Wiggles turn to giggles as she makes angel wings.
Wishing upon stars under beams of the moon,
She hums her favorite, a lost & forgotton tune;


Do I dare approach passion with loaded gun?
Hoping to hear your heart, to taste your tongue?

Be fair I say, hearts mercies are tender, unfeigned.

Happy Birthday Momma

I think of you often a hundred times a day,
To the Lord I ask, for my momma I pray;
No more suffering in Heaven you lay,
You would have been older sixty-two today.

Thank You

Thank you for the good times,
And days you fill with pleasure.
Thank you for fond memories;
And for feelings I'll always treasure.


Sweet dreams and memories of days long gone; .
Remembering my life and loves gone wrong.
I can't go back there's so much to replace,
My dreams become reality that's hard to face.

Cupid's Arrow

You''ve unlocked my heart and kept the key;
I'm unable to breath, unable to flee.
You've showed me love, gave my heart a home
Grateful to you, I'm no longer alone
