It does matter you know

So many people ...
so many lives ...
ruined.

It does matter you know ...

when sombody of violent character
threatens you with death,

when somebody tries
to rape you,

when somebody close to you
hits you like a boxing ball.

Where, how, who ...
matters so little
It leaves it's mark
Scars you
Scars everyone
The multitude of ruined lives.

  2. A sad poem, sadder even when I think about how many times it applies to so many people.
