As I look through the paned glass
window the reflection of red catches my eyes
In sudden my eyes begin to twitch
As I ponder upon the memories of the last time he laid his hands on me
I vowed that he would pay for this
The way his lips forcefully targets my breast
Biting hard and deep causing my nipples to bleed
Years later on
The pain still exists and I began to reminisce
The days my father and mother kept me under their wing
Protected me with their every being
But I was too far off
Ridding away beautiful thoughts
Letting the pain destroy me by
Controlling my inner being
Losing all direction
I wish that I find that man one day to
Confront him about my dignity in which he took!
I was only twelve years old
And twenty years later
It’s like the memories of it all happening still exists in my mind
I can vividly explain in full details of the torture I’ve endured
Feels like yesterday
The memories of being raped never just goes away!
To a brutal past
I pray you dissipate
But it’s a reminder in my mind that gives me strength which I cope!
So my past maybe sad
I’m hurt and bitter
Angry and yet glad
Because I’ve survived and so can you!
Just believe in your heart and You too can pull through!
Rid of rape
