Emmy Chepkoech Mitey

Girls are beautiful,
Girls are tender.
Delicate like the flower on my grandmother’s garden


Women are unforgiving,
Dark, conniving, hurtful,
Tongue, full of spears


Women are wonderful,
Women are great,
A woman nurtures,
and holds together, a multitude.

Either way,
Life is precious.
Any life must be protected,
No one has a monopoly to life

I weep for Emmy Chepkoech Mitey,
Pain unimaginable.

Sometimes, girls give their hearts to monsters.
