They don't know

They don't know that
When it went down
She was crying screaming
Noone around
So she just let it happen
She ain't want it
but she got it
Didn't open her mouth
she opened her legs
couldn't say no
scared to know that
it wouldn't matter again 
Slut whore freak
Is the names that was spoke
To her
But they ain't know
She ain't never told
Changed her
More ways then one
Noone to understand 
They all just want to hear her 
Then pass her to the next
Sleeves to cover the cuts 
That heals her pain
Cry stains 
On the pillows 
Wanna be deaf so she can't 
them call her a slut
But they ain't know
they ain't know 
To scared to say no
So she gave them what they 
One day her eyes was opened
A Man gave her a clean slate
Didn't care if anyone was 
He saw in her what Noone 
She did a 360 
Dusted off all that mud
she ain't know she ain't know
Her worth
The words he spoke
she knew 
He was put here on this earth 
To make her better 
Heal her
She worked hard 
Shut down
Got it together 
she ain't scared 
no more
No more 
Past behind 
Like a 
Closed door

    Dear Raven, Thank you for this poem and your vivid painting of what rape is like. Your words should let those who don't know be more knowledgeable now about the violation of rape and what it does to a person's life! Sincerely,Sara Giroux
