The Violation of Rape

Too many people are victims of sexual abuse and assault. The statistics are 20% or more of the population of men and women that have been violated.

Pouting Women

Stripped of dignity and clothes;
What is his name?
I don't know.
The thief of hearts of the
family and self.

I hope he goes to hell.

This was the hardest act
I had to forgive.
I won't forget it.

I am tranquil now and honest
to my feelings after years
and years of healing.

There are a lot of women
that may read this under-
standing the same violation.

If you tell, you are threatened
of death, the old end.
After 22 years, I "told".

I wanted to find a shotgun
and flatten him.

My Migraines stopped after
I told my therapist.

Suffering with no one
to tell.

There were nightmares
for many years and loud

He stole me and left me
A lot of women go through
this and some, later, have
a pimp.

20% of the population
is subject to this

I still want him to go

That's God's decision,
not mine.

I was five years old when
this happened.

Now that I am older,
I know he was sick.

It was me he picked.

I will sleep well tonight
because he is not here
and my door is locked.

That was very traumatic childhood, dear friend! The person who did this to you can't ever escape God's justice.

At first, I thought this was a poem from your imagination. But the more I read it, the more I'm convinced it REALLY happened to you. I think rape is the worst EVER violation. I have a friend who was raped many years ago - and for a long time she wished she was dead. Awful. My sympathies and love go out to you, Vernazoa.

Very painful to read this. I shall share your poem on Facebook Vernozoa, so many women struggle with the emotional pain after being raped.
I hope you can sleep better now.
