Silent poison

The silence stuns the sound

points its finger at the hand

that feeds and drips

the poison into the breast

of the woman tightly

clasping the new-born baby

that no-one wants to own.

Turning our heads away

from the frightful and unsightly,

afraid to cross the threshold

into the fresh bold life

that could change our vision,

open our minds,

lead us into genesis.
