You saw me as a naive little girl
You observed me all day, for countless days
I was scared, but I didn’t say anything
I was scared, because, what would society say?
You saw me as your target
As if I am just a plaything, nothing else
You came to talk to me
I was scared, but still didn’t say anything
You touched me even though I said no
You scarred me for life
I wasn’t sure if I would ever be okay again
But you didn’t care, as to you, I was nothing.
You entered me without my consent,
I screamed, you gagged me
Once you were done, you picked me up
In your unkind hands, and threw me away
I asked myself if this was okay
I contemplated on it for days
I didn’t ask anyone
But my inner voice screamed- NO IT’S NOT
I was disgusted at what had been done to me
But I was even more disgusted by myself
I couldn’t even stand for myself
I couldn’t even shout for myself.
I was now scared to live in this evil world,
I was scared to be called human
Because, this was what man really was
A dirty, disgusting monster.
So, this is a poem on sexual harassment, a topic very serious. Recently, I have been reading about the increasing cases of rape in my country, and I decided to write a poem on it. It wasn’t the easiest task, but well, this was my best try. I hope you like it, and if you do, do like and comment 🙂
