rape

by

Marlo Jordan

low confidence,no self respect, and low self esteem
but how can you stay strong
if he heard the painful screams
you've told this story before
how come she wont believe you
she's your own mother, and STILL she won't believe you
unsafe, insecure, you feel that your alone
you hide behind your smile
no one knows how afraid you are to go home
scared to go to sleep with this demon in your house
he tries to take over your body, make sure you can't scream or shout
you cry every day
you cey every night
you just want him gone
just want him out of sight
why does shee keep him around
deep inside she knows that he rapes you
but she loves him so much
why does she hate you...
a few years have now passed
your in your teenage years
but to forget about your past is like to never live in fear
you found a guy of interest
but you're scared to express your feelings
you dont want to relive your past
you dont want to relive that horrible feeling
you shut out your emotions for now
don't want to show a sign of weakness
all you can ask is how
how can ANYBODY make you feel like this
feel unsafe with any man
whether boyfriend or friend
nobody you can trust, for now this is a must
for how can you trust anybody
when so inappropriately you were touched
this pain never truely goes away
deep down it always stays with you
but when these thoughts get in your way
just know that the MAN ABOVE is the one you CAN

and when it seems he doesn't care
when it seems he is at a distance
believe he is always there
and he does help and will listen
