Poetry by Flora Jessop



Survivor: 1987
Written in 1987 just as Flora had gotten free from her abusers. Life in despair, Flora didn't know where she could go.

Second Poem: 1994.

Utah Justice: 2002.
Dedicated to the 5 daughters of Dan Barlow Jr., who were molested by him, their father, then punished for being brave and having the courage to tell. This event happened in Arizona, but when it comes to crimes against these children it matters not which state they are in as they will receive no help from Utah or Arizona. Barlow, who is the son of Colorado City's Mayor, was tried and convicted in Kingman Arizona and received a sentence of 13 days and probation for his crimes.
