The man in the cargo murdered my innocence, and he took away my pride
He broke me down, and he shattered my trust all at once in his stride
The man abused me, he denied me, and he watched as tears ran down my face
How could one soul do this? I believed I was in a safe place
Because of him, I fear just about all
And all I can do is blame myself; "How could I not escape?" not even crawl
My friends all dismissed me, when I spoke of what had occurred
They ignored my fearful plea for help, every last word
My eyes are now swollen, my bones nearly broken
For now the man who stole my childhood, holds it as his token
The people around believed my words to be untrue
Congratulations, you fooled them. But they really don't know you.
I told him no, and I even begged him to stop
Deafened by alcohol, he remained there on top
The man took away my voice; he is the bane of my life
The physical pain I felt that night was comparable to that of a knife
Because of him, I live in fear
I am afraid of any man who comes even remotely near
I walk alone now, and I hope this guilt is a heavy burden to haul
Dear man-in-the-cargo, you're not even a man. Not a little, not at all.

Rape Poems about Teens
Rape is one of the most degrading, devastating emotional events that can happen to a person. Many people try to deny that they were raped by keeping it a secret, but repressing an attack simply delays the healing process and leaves the attacker free to attack again. Instead, victims should seek out legal and medical help, and a trusted friend to confide in. Often, recovery only begins when a victim talks to others about what happened to them. If you were raped, remember that what happened to you is not your fault. You deserve to get help and emotional support.
