Trigger Warning. Free written based on own experiences of assault.
I remember the faces
I remember the names
There’s no point holding on to it
The past can’t be changed
I must heal
Move on

I wonder was I to blame?
I couldn’t be
I won’t be
I won’t carry that shame

I can’t regret what happened to me
Regret still won’t change
All they did to me
Regret can’t erase pain

All I can do is heal
I’m doing it every day
Rape isn’t a life sentence
One thing they couldn’t break

My spirit
My soul
The eternal grace, I’ve been saved

By Our Creator
Who’s redeemed me
For all the suffering they gave

I pray they won’t have daughters
For Karma has a funny way
Of paying us back
For all the sins in our days
