Amity

out of this world

2017

Long await to receive the day

Mind ablaze to mark the date

Seventeen presents he wish to unwrap

Seventeen, the year he plan to unwind.

Seventeen times forgiveness to unbrand

His sixteenth seemed to dent

Laid him sixteen roses at a grave

A life not well spent, but for him she gave.

She was sixteen with no time to plan

That day seventeenth at dawn

They crested her with seventeen thorns

 Her innocence was fleeced.

The dawn she was violated more than twice

And good justice was denied her thrice

Though pain is a sordid killer

Timely forgiveness is a true healer.
