RAPE!

RAPE!

 

They treated her like garbage

Scratched her and threw her on street.

They touched every part of her ,

every part so violently that

It pains when she breathes.

 

But still her virginity is questioned

while she is struggling to survive

Her character and curves are doubted

When they made her more dead than alive.

 

“It hurts,” she said

With sinister pain and cries

And all she wants is

Justice before her eyes

 

They say its because of mini-skirt

That exposed her thighs

Then why does it happen

With a 5 year old child ?

 

Real men don’t rape

That’s what the society says

But where were those million voices

When that rapist escaped?

 

Just try to listen to her silence ,

she is screaming inside.

Don’t let the law become lawless

Don’t let justice be left behind!

Hi Elsa,
This poem reminds me of various incidence,
I hate people who justify that women raped based on how they dress, quite painful.
They tend to make the victims of the rape responsible for these disgusting act,but on the other hand it's true that men who rape women are cowards and fools.
Am so bitter because I was sexually assaulted five times when I was a child but I was lucky they never raped me, it only rung in my mind it was something bad when I was an adult,
I pray that these rape cases stop/reduce .

Hi Elsa,
Hope you are doing well. Thank you for sharing this wonderful poem with us. It is sad that with rape cases the women are always blamed and justice never seems to be done. Thank you and hope the word will now go out that women deserve the right to be heard.
Stay well.
