Touching on the Sensitive

Legends of Windemere

You have set out
On a path of scars and tears
To bring a subject
That delves in shadows
Into the light
Whether people wish to speak
Or ignore the social plight
*
Using fiction as your soapbox
Weaving the taboo
Into the grand adventure
Either as the core
Or an issue from the side
You are determined
To get the conversation started
*
The risk is high
Silence is utter failure
Mindless shrieking is a dud
You seek speech
On a topic we shun and hide
Out of fear of ugliness
That thrives in humanity
*
Some will turn away
Looking for other pastures
Where the taboo remains sealed
Their departures crudely declared
Others will send thanks
As they see a hero
Survive a plight they know too well
