Me, Too

A survivor poem

Me, Too
Photo by Jeff Hardi on Unsplash

I know the fear of "friendly" hands,

Their trespass on the boundaries of my

body

I know the silent tears of shame,

Trying to hide from guilt which isn't mine to

bear

I know the rage - like acid etched

Onto my soul - leaving jagged scars in its

wake

I know the grief of being robbed,

The anguished loss of that which cannot be

replaced

But...

I know the still, small voice of hope;

It echoes as I add my own and say,

"Me, too."
