"Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all."
-St. Augustine

She bore a son. A rapist lives next door.
All the prisons are packed; The streets not clear.
Let me pour some knowledge onto you dear.
Pigs rather take a suicidal whore
Or a kind youngster living life hardcore.
What I meant earlier is what I fear.
It's not too far more like right in our ear.
His cry in our ear; his face on the floor.
They say they serve justice but they abuse.
Why would they rather lock up a weed head
Instead of taking away taht rapist?
Go on. Tell me. Your words won't spark a fuse.
You should have just listened to that weed head.
He had an addiction. Help him face it.

The author's comments:
I was inspired by this piece the day I found out I was living in a neighborhood that was filled with pedefiles. The neighborhood seem safe and secure. I was wrong when one evening a runner was nearly raped near my home. I hope the audience realizes what the world has come to. There are more drug dealers in prison than rapist. I just believe a rapist is more "dangerous" than a man on drugs. If a person is on drugs, would you not want to help him? After all, they are only hurting themselves.
