My Name Is Medusa

I Never Asked Why Me.

I Never Cursed The Names Of Those Who Bashed Me Thinking Their Words Meant Nothing

Through Tiny Screens In Their Hands.

I Didn't Consider Myself A Victim,

I Knew I Was A Victim, It Wasn't A Choice.

He Held Me Down And Forced Himself Inside Of Me,

I Screamed Out 

I Begged Him To Stop

He Didn't Know Me, How Dare He.

My Name is Medusa, Did He Know That?

My Family Loves Me, Did He Know That?

I Had Hopes And Dreams, Did He Know That?

My Name Is Medusa, Did He Know That?

With Tears In My Eyes I Spoke Out.

I Told My Story,

And They Punished Me.

They Criticized Me And Called Me A Liar.

With A Couple Clicks On Their Tiny Screens They Robbed Me Of My Truth.

How Dare They? They Didn't Know Me.

My Name Is Medusa, Did They Know That?

My Family Loves Me, Did They Know That?

I Had Hopes And Dreams, Did They Know That?

They Made Me The Villian In My Own Nightmare.

They Put Snakes On My Head And Labled Me A Monster.

How Dare I Try And Ruin The Life Of Such A Young Man?

He Was A Star Ahlete, Did I Know That?

He Had Such A Bright Future , Did I Know That?

The Trial Was Depressing Him So Much He Couldn't Hold Down His Steak, Did I Know That?

I Was Crticized And Punished For A Crime I Did Not Commit.

Walking Alone At Night Is Not A Crime.

Wearing My Skirt Short Is Not A Crime.

This Was Not My Fault.

But My Name Is Medusa,

And Now I Have Snakes On My Head,

And Now I Am Monster.

My Name Is Medusa, Did He Know That?
