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.

    Poem Sharing About Abuse

    The truth I hold, took years to unfold, locked up and never told.
    Now I speak, for I am done being weak.
    A story I will tell, awakening the pits of hell.
    Pinned against the wall, being six a little small.

  3. 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.
