You took me by force inside that car and rolled up the windows;
instantly darkening my world.
You slapped me violently
Bit me abusively
Tore my clothes savagely.
Six of you entered me
You pulled my hair
Plucked my nails
Burnt me with cigarettes.
And you laughed through it all
As my body, my spirit and my world was in an agony
I was only 13.
Then you threw me like a piece of dust
My innards slashed with blades
My body soaked in blood
My soul in smithereens.
Yet, I live with my head held high
What did you and the hundreds in
This Civil society expect?
That I would die of shame and hopelessness?
When it is You who behaved less than an animal.
P.S: Writing is like catharsis; I often write about things which disturb me deeply. I was beyond gutted after reading the Forgotten Rapes and to take out some of the anger and sadness I wrote this.
