Finding my voice to tell my story,
I hear my voice but it is shaking,
I hear the words coming out of my mouth
But I feel dissociated from myself
My therapist tells me to stay connected
To feel the feelings that I am having,
To stay in the conversation and not to go away.
Each time I tell my story I am taking my
Power back and get a little bit stronger
Each time I tell my story I putting the
Shame where it belongs
Each time I tell my story I am advocating
Each time I tell my story I am advocating for
Those that are not able to speak
Each time I find my voice I am bringing
Attention to how the chain of command
Does nothing about rape
Each time I tell my story and find my voice
I am healing myself and helping another
Person to heal.
Each time I tell my story my voice gets
Stronger and stronger.
