RAPE

L U S T

painful groans

scars of violence


stigma throughout life

blind justice 

humiliation


note: this a screaming clamor for justice to my fellow Pinoys (both male and female) who are brutally raped and cruelly stripped of their dignity and dreams here in Saudi Arabia.

    Congrats on the win my friend!!!!! Well written piece on a tragic subject. Some countries it is the victim punished most. In some nations it is the victim only punished. Sad world where no justice exists!

    yes!!!!! the victims being the ones punished... and I do hope the society empathized rather than putting the blame or seeing this tragic situation to the person.. rather we must be the way to bring back light to their lives... i mean going beyond that event...

    To many crimes such as this are brushed under many countries religions and inept policing. Latterly India <8> Rape to me is like murder, you've taken away a life of freedom, and for me, damn the do gooders, end their life, and I don't care how it's done <*> James

    Olive as you spend year after year here on the Soup you will begin to realize how many of us have suffered rape or physical or physiological abuse, many, many, wish only to forget and anger when the memories is brought back, personally I do not think the topic is written about enough in any venue, poetry, prose, movie and men are abused as well. Thank you dear for trying a new form for bring an important message and for just being the sweet heart you are. Congrad's Light & Love
