A Moment


A Moment
It only takes

a moment for

someone to harm

your child, a moment

for disgrace to

run rampid, free,

wild. It takes 

a mere instant

for an accused

to be released

a moment for

a molestor to

be set free

A second for

a loved one

to say words

of kindess minute

to make a 

call to tell

another I love 

you. A second 

for a life

sentence to be

let go in

the air as

a balloon freely

flying amist the

storms of the

harmed. It only 

takes a moment

for all charges

to be dropped.

A moment that

a child, spouse

friend can never

get back for

the attack was 

real to many

yet so many 

walk the streets

freely; not enough

physical evidence at 

best a moment,

a second, a

mere blink of

time lost by

victims of violence

the penalty, crime

falls on the

broken angels, fallen

from the skies

wondering why heaven

would release such

people to hit

beat, rape, molest

and yell until

yet another cries

more tears; he 

has shed not

one tear from

his soul; walking 

free the man

the guilty man

that was sitting

on death row.
