Just two seconds.
That's all it took.
Her daily, upended.
Her world, shook.
And now she will
warn her daughters
before they have
to grow up.

Take caution where
you place your drink.
Heed your attire.
Don't consume.
Think.

Don't smile pretty
in the company of strangers.
Your lipstick and clothing
invite violating dangers.
They'll say it's your fault.
You should have known.

Listen now, child,
before you're grown.

His future depends
on the choices you make.
Just two seconds,
is all it takes.
