    Default The Forgotten Victim Poem........

    The Forgotten Victim
    ? Alison Henderson
    A persons comment:

    'That's her there! her hubby's inside!'
    'How can she stand by him?' a neighbor cried!
    'I'd throw away the lock and key!'
    'That husband of hers should never be free!'

    'That woman can do so much better than him!'
    'I'd throw all his letters away in the bin!'
    'Just what can he offer now he's locked away?'
    'A complete waste of space!' she shouted that day.

    'That's the one there! her boyfriend's inside!
    'He's scum of the earth!' a neighbors implied!
    'If I was her, well I'd meet someone else!
    'Not wasting my life to be left on the shelf!

    'That woman's been left to cope with the shame'
    'It was all over the papers! and gave out his name'
    'He's useless! A criminal! Bring back the rope!'
    'He'll do it again! for him there's no hope!'

    My comment:

    That man you condemn has a child and a wife
    A Mum and a Dad who has given him life!
    What would you do if this happened to yours?
    Deny all your love and close all the doors?

    Do you honestly think I'd sink to a level
    And just turn my back and deem him a devil?
    Yes! He's done wrong and is serving his time
    And No! I do not agree with his crime.

    'That woman' you point at, yes it is me
    I was born with a name, as I'm human you see!
    I'm innocent! just in case you've forgot
    And love him whether you like it or not!

    I've had the abuse, the comments and more
    It's nothing I haven't heard all before
    I mean no offense when I say this to you
    I'm a victim as well- A forgotten one too.

    Very nice!!!
    True love is worth waiting for even if it takes a lifetime. Then in return a lifetime of love will be waiting for you

    Very nice thank you for sharing... My son had to take a victims class in Camp Hill. He was thinking it would be about the people that he robbed, it was also about making his family the victims of his crime. He was very torn up over the class. I praise the Prison for having such a class.

    Ya know, there is not one of us involved in the crime, trial, sentencing, serving the time that doesn't have the word "VICTUM'on us somewhere. Yes, out SO are actually in there for their crime, but our love keeps us prisoners in out own right. We nay have a t-day celebration with family and friends, but inside our hearts ache because our So is not with us. I'm alone as a widow and spent many holidays alone, or alone with family. Now, he is in my life and i'm so sad we can't be together, but i'm thankful that God blessed me with his love. I will be with his family, but that to kinda hurts because i see the love his brothers share with their wives and it is nice, but it also hurts. Yes, our lives makes us victums to and our sentence is so different to baer, but because we love them, we can and with gods' help, we endure and get stronger and then we find this forum to help us. Thank you God for my life.
