Wall Street Journal Poem

December 18, 2007
By Kyle Widenski, Nashotah, WI

I took a road trip
To find Ann Zimmerman.
For more than 43 years
I’ve tried to find my sister.
It’s been lonely,
Very lonely.

24 years of estrangement
From six brothers and sisters.
My life has been of crime and depression
This problem is not common
For my own attack
Has lead to imprisonment

I was convicted and shackled
To that life of emotional and physical burdens
I’ve tried to find Ann Zimmerman
Now looking in Baton Rouge.
She, my ex rape victim,
Will be my new fiancé.
