I did not ask to be raped

Brutally molested

Body vandalized


by your non believing eyes

Fickle minds

Undermining my wounds

I don’t need to explain

I did not ask to be raped.

Fondled by unloving hands

Ripping off my pants

Making me feel disgusting

With each plea to use protection

Personal space violated

Asifuni ukuchitha umuzi

Often debated

Self esteem faded

My womb has been invaded

It’s not fair

I did not ask to be raped

Fingers pointed

Victim victimised

Guilty walk away innocently

Inner sense scarred deeply

That even my daughters

Long after they are born

Will know that I carried this pain

All my life with me


I did not ask to be raped.
