You don't know what pain is
You don’t know what pain is until……….
You have to stay silent while your blood flows from violence
For fear of being stigmatized because you were raped
Until you’re forcefully held and your clitoris ripped off
Until you’re forcefully married to him against your will
Until he spanks and tortures and makes you his sex slave
Until you have to give up yours to serve his
Cook, wash clothes, babysit, get insulted and never get angry
Until you become the shadow of his shadow
Until your groins and not your brains are all they see and seek
Until he takes credit for all your pluses while you get stabbed for his messes
Until your voice becomes useless and not worth hearing
You don't know what pain is Until you've felt it.....
