O Vile One!

She was only a little child
who wanted to live her life as one—
she wanted to enjoy her childhood but

you robbed her of that desire when you desired her and you cut

short her innocence. You defiled her pure thoughts and replaced them with constant

terrors, regrets and tears. Why?
How could you? Now, she’ll never see life the same,

your name will remain in her memories as the thief of her beloved treasure.

You vile wicked soul!

How is it that you are worse than an animal? Animals consider their young but you— you don’t. You

not only steal but also threaten to kill should she speak, you confine her to silence, you molest her rights. You

rip her joy apart, she will never be the same again.

Hide yourself in shame, O vile one! You stink of rottenness. Your mind is critically deformed. Where do you think you will

end? It may take a while but justice will one day speak,

and when it does, what shall become of you?

O Vile One!

He was only a boy when
he was defiled. Now, he can’t
seem to get it out of his mind. He

struggles to be strong; to be a man so
he fills up his skin with tattoos to prove his
masculinity. You

took away his pride and silenced his strength. You live in his head, you are the epitome of regrets.

You vile wicked soul!

How could you shred his innocence into particles of pain? How could you feed him a lifetime of disdain?

How is it that you exist to offer this? You
thief! You are a disgrace to the human
race — a waste of sperm; an epidemic!

Yet, for you O vile one, there is hope. Perhaps, you are a victim also. Seek help! Change your ways. Make peace with your

past, with yourself and those you have hurt. Right your wrongs; admit your fault now that you have the chance otherwise

sooner or later, judgement will consume you and mercy will not plead your case.

About O Vile One

O Vile One is a spoken word poetry that speaks against child molestation. The poet does not mince words as it is a very serious issue. Children are meant to be protected not molested and it is very painful to know that a child who is helpless is being manipulated by those who should serve as protectors.

This is a grievous issue and it should not be taken lightly. We can’t allow such evil suppress the voices of these children. This is why parents need to be close to their kids. Examine their bodies, and ask questions. Let your children be able to confide in you. Help them understand that no one has the power to silence them.

In as much as the poet unapologetically rebukes these vile ones — she also offers them hope because in many cases, the perpetrators are also victims who are struggling with their own demons.

Her advice to those who have been molested is to not let such experiences define them. The poet, who has had her own share of this experience in her childhood has realized that dwelling in the past won’t make anyone move forward.

She suggests that those who have experienced such should let go of the hurt and pain and MUST forgive. Forgiveness is not for the evil doers but for you.

Just as stated earlier, many of the perpetrators are victims too but that doesn’t mean justice won’t be served. What is evil is evil. What is vile is vile. But you do not deserve to be bound by the terrors of your past. You must learn to let go and move on. At the same time, raise your voices against evil so that the oppressed will be heard.

This was difficult to read knowing someone who had dealt with this pain. I am glad you are speaking on behalf of these hurt children regardless. 

Subhashish Roy

It’s so painful. She without any fault deprived of her right to live a free life of her own with dignity. Why are such animals born, I wonder.

Karletta Marie

Your words and voice are so powerful …  I feel strength and bravery through your work.  Just yesterday I published a story on Daily Inspired Life about this same issue.  I am so proud to be woman when I hear women like you standing up and speaking out courageously.    Thank you for your work.  

Wren Marie

This is such a powerful topic. You have a way with words that inspires. Keep it up!

You are so brave to be the voice for these child that have none. I hope can shed some light into this very dark corner and spread the word to get other to be aware. Sometimes it is easier to look away and pretend you do not know something, than it is to take a stand. Great job. 


Your poem has so much to say… The voice of those who suffer for years, despite no fault of their own. It’s our responsibility to build a safer world for everyone.


Very powerful piece.  Forgiveness is a tough thing, but I can see how it is something that can help people move on.

Fashion and Style Police

This is so deep. We should all say no to child abuse. No child should ever have to go through that. 


Sad that there will always be people like this. So instead we have to talk to our children and teach them to recognize and speak up against anyone who tries to harm them. Also not to be ashamed to be a victim because victims are strong and they only way to stop people like this is to tell others who can protect them and bring that person to justice.

Such a horrific thing for children to endure. The poem is very powerful in conveying the sad truths about what happens to some children in this (sometimes) cruel world.


this is one of the saddest poem I have ever read :(, too much pain for the child.. how can someone do something too hurtful for a child. I pray for the children who have suffered this pains. Let God guide them.


It is definitely not easy to forgive a crime committed to you when you were just a child; but holding onto the pain and letting it rule one’s life, means the vile predator is still in control.  The number of crimes against children is sad, thank you for speaking up about such an important issue. 


The poem is heartbreaking. You turned raw emotions and scars of others into words. As Lisa wrote, thanks for speaking for the victims.

Krizzia Scollon

Feeling all the feelings because of this poem! You are so talented!
