40 - Serving Love

by Janala

I remember the look in daddy's eyes
Recall the love and hate interwined

To gain the trust he took his time
then helped himself to what was mine

      stepped into the fold uninvited,
You crawled in sacred spaces to be delighted

Unlike tennis
You always had the advantage
over life, poverty
and this little girls' virginity.
