’cause it is all
that they know
think it is all
they are good for..
are they really to blame?
then THEY are arrested
and charged as criminals?!
do the headlines say
like it was their choice?

repugnant and an outrage
Yes! Thank you for reading and commenting.
It’s easier to blame the victim than to talk about the customers, the rapists and the people who sold the child in the beginning. If you actually got to the core of the problem then something would have to be done about the horror of it all and men would be up on charges and put into jail or blamed, or damaged. It’s easier to blame the child and/or the victim, that way only one person takes the fall and the USERS are allowed to USE again and again and again and again in heir never-ending hunger for more.
Powerful Melanie. Should be on the cover of EVERY magazine.
I knew you would understand… thank you for your kind words.
I must say that recently the amount many forms of aggression I am forced to experience one way or another has literally overwhelmed me, left me in a weird, ‘catatonic’ state. I don’t know whether it’s me being oversensitive or we are struggling with a growing snowball of violence. Melanie, very good point about the term ‘child prostitute’, I don’t think we need this kind of corectness when facing the problem of sex slavery. What is the next step? Absolutely cruel, stigmatising comments some people make when a woman is raped? That she provoked it, she dressed like a slut? That just makes me sick. Not so long ago I’ve read a story about a woman attacked and raped while jogging. What have I found in the comments section? ‘How dumb she was tu run alone in the woods!’. I need a spaceship ready to take off immediately…
Nothing new. It is horrible and it continues. BLAH!
I don’t think you are overly sensitive…just Aware.
Save me a seat on your spaceship.
Yes it’s something you don’t decide to do as a child.
This is beautifully written. Sadly, child prostitution is so damn rampant across the world, as is child pornography
Yes,unfortunately it is a worldwide problem.. Even though some people think it only happens in “other” places.
Powerful poem, Melanie, and a darn good question. It’s diabolical.
Thank you. Makes no sense , right?!
powerful and emotional, Mélanie… my words: all the adults who sexually exploit kids(minors) and/or other adults should rot in jails…
