Honor killed

Honor killed.Filled with foolish pride.

Another’s hopes you denied.

Listen, love’s flowing still from her words.

Castigated by your castrated hearts.

Tin souls echoing an angry Faith’s vows.

Honor killed.

Sentencing actions of a failing father.

Crimson stained hands and hearts.

Unrepentant prophets part.

Slaves to sins caustic refrain.

Honor killed.

Loving hearts by actions stilled.

Misguided men menacing the hurting.

Women wanting hope only cope.

Children bereft of understanding cry.

Siblings and friends hearts die.

Honor killed.
