Come read my contribution to the Sexual exploitation series going on at the Whisper and the Roar. Come be a part of the revolution.

Whisper and the Roar

This poem is part of the series on the Global Exploitation of Women.

  1. Rape is a severely under-reported crime with surveys showing dark figures of up to 91.6% going unreported.
  2. A United Nations statistical report compiled from government sources showed that more than 250,000 cases of rape or attempted rape were recorded by police annually. The reported data covered 65 countries.
  3. 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed, 2.8% attempted).
  4. Every 98 seconds another American is sexually assaulted.

I have seen how the definition of this heinous act has degraded over the years. Initially, just being raped was a taint to someone soul and body and now as the humanity degrades further and flushes the morals down the drain even more, just being alive after being raped is considered “lucky”. So where are we heading?

Are you brave enough? -Megha Sood

Come read my poem on Whisper and the Roar to see if you can handle the pain.

Whisper and the Roar

If I drink up all your sorrow
will you be good as new
if I smoke all your worries
in a puff
will you stay alive
for a few hours more

if I scrape all your scars
and wash up all your pain
Will you believe
in what I have to stay
to you?

Scrubbed
Rubbed
Washed and
Cleaned
Glistening in the light
Will we be together again?
if I wash that blood of my sins
off my palms,
Will you give me company for life?

Whimp
Groan
whisper and
and a scream
if I let all my heart out
Will you hold my hands
till the end of time
tie that holy knot?

Promises
Promises
I have heard many
and faces and names
I have seen enough
You are as weak as they come
Strong enough
till you see my gaping wound
and shudder

Rising high on your ego

You are clipping  my wings  to suit your needs; you are breaking  my bones to fit me inside a cookie cutter; caulking and smoothing my  rough opinions just so you please; tightening the strings  to make this puppet dance to your tune wildly; You are bending  my will and twisting  my emotions to  suit your needs; you … Continue reading Lava
