Rape Poems

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.

  2. Change What Is To Come

    Life Changing In A Moment

    Picture

    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.

    Poem About Being Raped By Father

    I heard the footsteps coming and I knew this would be another long night,
    And something inside me screamed this time it really isn't right.
    The words he was saying were ruthless and cruel,
    And each time he hit me, I sat there and obeyed each and every rule.

    When I was 6, I got raped, and it happened at the ages of 7, 13, 14, 15, and now I am 16. I can't stop self-harming, and I tried to kill myself when I was 13. A friend saved me.

    I think back to when it happened,
    think back to that awful day.
    The day when it all happened,
    the day he took "it" away.
