by R. Carey
It is as if, being a woman, man, or child gives us rights to our bodies. Parents or relatives do not see nor want themselves or others to see what is happening to you. With no understanding for yourself still say No!
For us all
Girls, boys, women and men tell it and then
The deletion of it all secures
Our freedom of any abuse, gives us strength to
Not empower them and empower the sanity, the beauty of our life
The meaning to allow us to go forward
Delete it all!
I heard evil, I saw evil. It was being let out on me.
Speak when spoken to, otherwise be quiet. Who was I that
Anyone would listen too? I learned that early in life.
I never knew what normal was. Is that normal?
Everybody else seemed to be different than me. Their
Smiles and laughter let me know it didnt bother them.
Invisible and unknown, shush they are coming for me
Again, to touch me and make me do things.
