Innocent Victims of the Complacent West

Cold, broken, afraid
Impregnated – Flung aside
Innocence stolen

Taken, held, abused
violated, discarded
Youth forever gone

Prisoners of evil
Hollow, haunted, pain filled eyes
Ignored by the West

ISIS’ young victims
Sides round and swollen
Children yet mothers

Inspired by the Haiku Horizons prompt “shame
