Just A Girl

Breathing

His hot breath on my neck, he’s

Deceiving those around him

Skin crawling, tears falling

Blows to the ribs, blows to the thighs

Why doesn’t anyone look into my eyes

And see the secrets written there?

“Boys will be boys”

When is it enough? When will it end?

That was years ago, when will I mend?

Actions have consequences is what they say

So when will the day come he pays?

I’m just a girl, trying to cope

I’m just a girl, holding onto hope

I’m just a girl, and my voice is loud

He’s not a man, just a coward.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
