Today I cry – Poem by Chanty007

Today I’m crying…

Today I will be crying for you Hannah

For the hurt that was done, for the pain that was caused,

I cry for the sudden end of your youthful smile, your radiant sunshine face.

Today I will be crying for you Franziska Blöchliger

For your purity stolen so viciously, for the little girl cries you must’ve cried.

I cry for the inhumane hurt you had to endure.

Today I will be crying for you Reeva

For the fear you felt deep down, for the unexpected end to your beautiful hopes and dreams.

Today I cry for you Anene

For being naïve in your thinking, for trusting the one you called friend

I cry for you were ripped away callously

Today I cry for you Carmen

For the children you left behind, for the anxiety you lived with for so long

I cry because you could never leave until you were gone

Today I cry for you Anni

For your innocent and kind face, for you believed in vows and in love

I cry because you truly believed

Today I cry for you Jayde

For your gentle heart that trusted the enemy, for being oblivious about the trap being set

I cry for the love you wasted on a cruel cruel heart

Today I cry for you Susan

For no one knew of the invisible scars laid across your heart

I cry because you tried so hard not to part

Today I cry for you Karabo

I cry because you were strong but not strong enough

Today I cry for all the women whose lives was taken by the hands of the deceivers of their hearts, the destroyers of their futures and the demolisher of their hopes.
