therefore we had to be eradicated.
They came in the middle of the night
and stole us from our lives like thieves,
burning down the windows we had flagged,
a path of lights showing the way home.
They brought us close to the flames
We had our wings and eyes scorched.
One hundred fearful blind moths,
we fluttered away at random.
(One hundred schoolgirls have been abducted in Nigeria today. I pray they are returned to their families safely and soon.)
