Note: I have been reading and hearing a lot about domestic violence, rape and other forms of injustice towards women and children. I know I won’t be able to capture what goes on inside the minds of these people so this is  just a small attempt. I might have got carried away and mixed my emotions in certain places  but this is purely imaginary.

Time heals the physical and mental pain related to a particular event but the long term impact it leaves on the psychological development and self esteem of the one who goes through it, is hard to cure. I just felt the need to write something from a victim’s point of view, so here it goes:

I can see it coming

An unforgivable act of cruelty

As the darkness wraps around me,

As I lose my sanity……

No, stay away….

You have no right,

Too weak for your strength,

Too tired to fight

I’m pushed to the floor

stripped off and bare,

Do you see the anguish I’m in?

Do you even care?

This cannot be happening

Oh…..please no!!!!

This is intolerable

Please let me go…

The cold is unbearable

More so your touch

I can hardly see, hardly breathe

It hurts so much

I’m trapped, I’m violated,

You seem unaware

Lost in your world of ecstasy,

Leaving my mind filled with despair

Treating me like dirt,

You just leave me there and go

Now that you’ve got what you wanted,

Now that you need me no more

Pay me for the life I lost

In those fifteen minutes that you stole

Don’t worry about my body, it’ll be fine

Pay me for what it takes to mend my soul…………

    This is beautiful and powerful, Althea. I pray for the healing of every spirit that suffers and for their own Holy light to shine through the darkness that their pain has left behind. Let this Holy light show them that their life is not over and in their highest place they can find solace and the blessed release of true healing. It takes time, but nothing that comes from Love is impossible. Love you and your emathetic heart. And if this is your story or that of someone close to you, let me enfold you and/or them in a holy hug. I’ve been there, Dear One, and so I know that forgiveness heals us and it’s the only way to find peace. But first let’s allow time to do its work. Sharie
