Day 4: #SayNoToRape She said noIt meant no, and not yesYou grabbed her hairAnd tore her dress.And bruised her flesh.What you didn’t knowWas the gaping hole you left in her soul.What you didn’t know…Daddy was never aroundMother said he was in heavenGrandma said he was in hellYears ago, like you todayViolence had conceived youYour mothers freedom to chooseTaken from her.Bruised. Humiliated. Denied. Abandoned. Then you.She would swear she taught you better.Respect. Especially for a woman’s choice.Self-control. Because that is how men ruled the world.Love. Because it isn’t forceful, nor violent and never about sex.She said no.It meant no, and not yes.You grabbed her hairAnd tore her dress.And the demon, the hate, the evilThat conceived youWas in manifest.How do you look at yourself in the mirror and not cringe?There are guns, and knives.Then there is your penis, and your mind.She said no. It meant no. And not yes. Written by Caleb Olorunmaiye@_ceefour Today is day Four of the #SayNoToRape campaign presented by a group of young talented writers from #Bloggersville.
