WILL LIVE TO LIVE AGAIN

Like every beautiful one

A glorious day welcomed me to world

Amidst happiness mother sighs with joy

With family return celebrations of love

 

With same love grew I even in strength

Like a rock brew I in health

Intelligence and hope became my flair

Undoubtedly cruised I beautifully and fresh

 

But devil in man’s skin suddenly emerged

Pervasively paraded himself a friend

With love untold, my arms wide to receive

Unknown he planned a trip for me to hell

 

He touched me, bruised me, molested me

Defiled me, disgraced me, repressed me

Tears trickled down all sides to cheek

In pool I crawled, in search of where to lean

 

All went dark

 

The days of sorrow began its count

Became pregnant with thoughts and recounts

Every step turns pain draining my days

Each minute sinking me in ocean of plague

 

But I can’t continue like this

No!

 

Can’t continue watching my life out of me

Can’t watch my life drift off with ease

Seeing every idea fly off with breeze

Watching childhood dreams fade out like wind

 

But then, it feels irreplaceable

Foundation of this trauma seems untraceable

To remain a woman again feels unimaginable

To regain my strength seems unthinkable

 

But I say no, not without a fight

 

Not without an effort to live again

My life lies before my face

To find the bearing of grace

Even purpose and dream awaits my faith

 

To give up is an alternative I resolutely ignore

To accept your dictates is not my option

I stand unshakable, I deny you the pleasure

I am unbreakable with the mind of a warrior

 

Yes! Am going to live again

 

To bring my brilliance to many as gain

To tell of my ordeal and bring many to save

World awaits my freedom from your constraints

Will live, live till my life manifest conquest

I will live, live!

Because battle is lost only when I concede

Live because wars are won only by defiant

For nothing is lost,

Only living awaits my consent

 

I will live and live to live!

Because nothing was taken, unless I give in

Will be mindful of what surrounds my fate

Will concentrate on what I command

And be unshakable by other demands

 

Once more I will allow my rose to emerge

Give the eaglet in me the chance to soar

Will make up the leeway and stand my ground

And in all ways, I choose to live my life

 

HAPPY VOICE

 

 

 

This poem is to give hope to any woman that has ever been molested one way or the other. You can live again, please live.
