A poem a day for 2015 - day 8 - Because

I will not dismiss your voice
I will not not hear your cry
I will not call you a liar
I will not ask you what took you so long to come forth
I will have compassion
I will have ears
I will have ready shoulders for your stories
Your tears
Your shame
I will have erase for your shame
I will have hands you can hold
Feet that will long walk with you
I will have mouth that will close when you need company and no noise
I will have memory of your yesterday
Of you
I will hold my head up with you 
Next to you 
For you
I will have this this be about you
Not his celebrity
The media
You will not be a joke
Not on my watch
