A few times I have posed questions, but like many have no answers. Here I try for answers or explanations at least.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


Young and pretty, full of fun


Bouncy steps dressed for sun


No invitation does this infer


Why then do rapes occur?


 


Young and strong, arrogant too


Gold adorns flesh of darkened hue


Doesn’t mean some instant threat


Nothing there to fear, and yet…


 


Sweet young couple hug and kiss


Oblivious to all in enchanted bliss


Their love should soften us then


But doesn’t because both are men


 


Younger boy still at school


Street aware, no one’s fool


Why then is this lad so afraid


He feels he has to carry a blade


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 


Those who commit such an act


Have not with evil made a pact


These weaklings show their power


Only by attacking a gentle flower


 


Those who judge by colour alone


Are really scared by the great unknown


And to make their acts more obscene


They seek to mask an envious green


 


Those that their fellow man do choose


Seem to have more than most to lose


I’ll never comprehend how they live


Still support we should happily give


 


Knife’s are not about the lad’s fears


More about machismo with his peers


Let us educate this poor young boy


Before he kills with his shiny ‘toy’

Wise "Questions And Answers?" in this magnificent poetic accomplishment, make this a scented flower.

It was pleasant privilege to read "Questions And Answers?".

Thank You, Poet for sharing Your wisdom through Your poetic art.

Gratefully,
