For Women Everywhere Pt. 1

Outrage.

Pain.

Sadness.

I haven’t been assaulted.

I haven’t been raped,

But women all over the country,

All over the world have been.

To know that women who have been taken advantage of.

Women who have been violated.

Women who have had something taken from them.

To know that these women feel unsafe to tell their story

To know that these women feel like even if they did speak

Their story would be ignored and doubted. 

Their story would be tossed aside because

She was wearing a tight shirt.

She was wearing a short dress.

She had a few drinks.

She was flirting with him.

She knew him…

Because

He had a few drinks.

He didn’t think a no meant no.

Boys, men…

A no means no.

I don’t know what it feels like

But even imagining it

Hearing all the stories

Seeing women hurt because

Some men take what they want

Like savages…

Outrage.

Pain.

Sadness.
