This poem is not meant to portray women who have been abused as victims but as survivors who will no longer tolerate being victimized. I encourage women to seek organizations that will empower them like WOW. Search their site: WOW - Worldwide Organization for Women
There are literally hundreds of organizations to view or join, please take a look.
Some men have responded to my poetry in defense and have mentioned they feel my poetry victimizes them. Welcome to our world.
She cuts and the pain feels good
She vomits and the emission cleanses
She sleeps in day light solid
At night there are demons
Rabid dogs who attack and rip
Till she is devoured raw.
In silence her screams escape
Within her throat they remain.
One night her dreams change
She stands with conviction and strength
A victim no longer
The animals retreat into the cavesFrom which they came.
