How Do You Mourn a Pedophile?


How do you mourn a pedophile?
Do you break down and cry,
Or do you stand over his casket
and look him dead in the eye?
How do you mourn a pedophile?
Do you overlook all the pain,
or do you rejoice that he is gone
And your sunshine is no longer rain?
How do you mourn a pedophile?
Do you forgive and forget?
Or, do you go through life traumatized,
Full of hurt and regret?
How do you mourn a pedophile?
Do you acknowledge all of his sins,
Or do you pretend it never happened-
Like all of your family and friends?
How do you mourn a pedophile
Whose whole life was a lie?
What do you say to that person
As your final good-bye?
Some people may be wondering:
Mourn a pedophile, why bother?
But you have to choose how to grieve,
when that pedophile is your father.
