Broken Silence

We cannot succeed when half of us are held back – Malala Yousafzai

I am not dead
I am a survivor
it’s difficult to forget
what you did to me
because
every day I carry the pain!

you tied my hand and
ripped my pants
I begged and pleaded
but you never listened
you unzipped me
so harsh, did I bleed.
you forced yourself
and once you were done
the process repeats
again with your friend
It hurts like a hell
each time you did to me!
I screamed to stop
but you sadistically laughed.
you bite my boobs
till my nipples bleed
I wonder how
did your mom breastfeed!

I was there for hours
lying motionless,
bleeding with pain,
I could barely walk
or hardly talk.
I was brutally raped
again and again.
excruciating pain
the sheet blood stained
I feel numb
I feel like a shell
I am still alive
but a walking dead!

five years passed
I see his face
flash in my mind
I am still reminded
the fateful night.

I am not fazed
by his act of rape
I am 13 now
I was raped at 8
only my body was hurt
and not my mind!

I phased out from adolescence
to become an Adult
my silence is broken
my confidence is invincible
I Chose to Live
and Chase my Life!

      1. More than I liked and I felt empathized with the victim’s feel. though been a guy myself, how brutal it was to rape a kid/ girl/woman , it must be punished with severe cause…

  4. This is raw! Indeed all the voices that are suppressed. It still surprises me that we don’t yet have a strong law against rape given that so many women, girls have to live through hell!
