You walk into my home and think that you have a right to be here.
I offer you kindness and respect
but by the way you act
I might as well offer you a beer.

Are you a good man or an evil creep
or a man with a plan to deceive?

I can take it for myself
and push you away.
I would have no qualms about slapping you.

But if you touch my little girl
you will be dead.
I know this sounds harsh from someone like me
but you have no idea who you are dealing with;
a Mother who will protect her child
from a lurking, stalking man that you may be.

Has it happened before?
I will bide my time.
I will observe and take my notes.
I will document every movement of yours.
I will politely listen to you for now
and gather whatever is on you here
and sift it for the truth.

I will not judge you yet but you better beware of the punishment I can dish out.

How dare you take my child and try to lead her to some dirty place?
What are you, some idiot?
You have lived here on Earth long enough to know right from wrong.

I don't care to try to analyze you
I am just biding my time to discover the truth.
I hope you're as nervous as you have made us.
I pray that the fear my little girl is going through will be yours one day.

If you're just an ignorant idiot,
than why don't you just stay away?

I think that I am so peaceful and then I see someone like you,
pushing the limit with me
and being so bold
without a care for your wife
and I guess not a care for your life.

Her brothers won't stand for it
How can you be so unwise?
Don't you know what will happen to you?
I can see you now hanging on the tree; you know the one you planted the flowers around so carefully?

You want what?
The children here are afraid of you
and it just can't be idle gossip.

You stood in my bathroom and got too close
You stood in my home and took too much
You whispered in my ear in my car so my daughter wouldn't hear
an obscene joke that I probably wouldn't even tell my closest friend.

What's your game?
What's your name?
Are you dumb or what?
How long have you been on the run?
And when are you leaving again?

Kiss your wife goodbye
and start to pack for jail
but if I were you, I'd worry more about the pain of suffering in hell.

I hope and pray it isn't true and if it isn't, I will retract this "poem"
but in the meantime you better beware.
You are in the path of a Mother's wrath
as she watches her child huddle under her blanket in fear of you.

If you have evil in your mind
and wrong intentions on your hands
then it's over for you.
You might as well give up now.
I will not live like this
or watch children afraid to run and play in their own front yard.
I won't be intimidated by you.

Just let me ask you this?
What if some stranger asked your daughter to go to a tool shed by herself with a man you didn't know and didn't ask you or your wife?
Think you would be a little mad?
Or would you even care?
Think you would have killed him by now or at least have called the police?
Why do you think you are so special?
Must because you have gotten away with something for too long.

You think I am so innocent and naiive
and you're so wrong.
I seem like a willing victim to you
and my little girl even more so.
A predator hunts what they want.
But they love to prey on the lambs.
But this ewe has a surprise for you.
I've been down this road before
and have learned to shoot to kill.

So I hope you have thought it over and have weighed the consequences out.
Is it worth it to be dead?
Just do it yourself
and leave us alone.

Why, I can't believe my eyes.
I'm writing this harshly and I must save up my strength
for the fight that lies ahead.
I know you will deny and have an alibi
But I knew something was not quite right.

I chalked it up to paranoia but it seems like it's coming true .
Our peaceful new home has been invaded by you.
And I will pray to take the stench away from your grubby hands and heart.
You should pray for your soul.
I'm praying for your wife and the innocent children here.

OMG if this is true story I would advise you go to police immediately and even if you have doubts let them sort it out. Rvenge is fine but prevention is a lot better if you still have time.
