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
