Poems about Rape by Survivors

Of all crimes committed against a person, rape is the one that leaves a person feeling the most violated. A rape victim is often left with the feeling that a part of them has been torn apart. Because the feeling is still with them, the victim may have a sense that the crime is continuously occurring. To use another person's body and ignore the soul the resides within is the most egregious crime that one person can commit against another. Rape victims should get help from a professional to enable them to move on with their life.

  1. 1. Black Bird

    This is my story, about what happened to me when I was 12. The point was to get people to feel, and understand something that not everyone understands. For those who haven't experienced this, I hope it helps you understand and connect with people who have.

  2. 2. Change What Is To Come

    I am a very introverted person, but when I start to write, nothing stands in the way. This is about a fourth of the full poem, so it's just a glimpse to fit into the limit.

    It's strange how a few short seconds can lead you in a whole new direction,
    It alters how you think and act and see your own reflection.
    From a single moment on, my life was forever changed,
    Like everything I previously knew had suddenly been rearranged.

  3. 3. Church Service

    I was sexual assaulted by my step-father from the age 6 till 12. After that I went into foster care. My mom died when I was 10 and we couldn't live together anymore (including my brother) and they were suspecting something too.. It mostly happened every Sunday since that was always the day that we had to come into the bed of my parents to talk about our problems. Only it happened quite different after my mom passed.

  4. 4. I Trusted You

    I wrote this poem to kind of tell people the fear you have when you get raped and also how it affects you for the rest of your life. Its been 7 years for me and I still absolutely cannot forget it. And it doesn't matter if I'm around my best, sweetest guy friend, I'm still afraid and nobody will ever understand that unless someone does something sick like that to them. But I have learned through all this that God has a purpose for everything- even this and no matter what He is always there for you so you are never alone!

  5. 5. They Can No Longer Hurt Me

    When I was 4-7 years old I was raped. I tried to tell someone, but they thought I was just crying wolf. Those things that had happened wrecked my childhood. I was scared of everything and everyone, and I hated myself for letting it happen. But I realized deep down inside I had the strength to end it all.

    And each time he hit me, I sat there and obeyed each and every rule.

  7. 7. The Man In The Cargo

    I was raped at a high school party about 3 months ago. I'm 16 years old and was intoxicated. When I went to tell my 'friends' at the party, they all took his side and claimed I was too drunk and that I made it up. I've thought about this situation every day, and I've blamed myself almost every time. I've found writing as a good way to release the built up sadness that I feel inside me.

    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

  12. 12. Still I Show No Pain

    A group of teenagers, about 5 of them, grabbed me and each took their turns. They had problems with a couple of my boys and decided that since they can't get to them, they'll go through me to do that. I don't blame them for what happened. They were there for me when I needed them. And every day I thank them.
