Overcome With Tears

Overcome With Tears,

Tears streaming from my eyes,

So much hurt,

So much sadness,

Hard to breathe,

Flashbacks, Nightmares

Triggers,

Being told that we do not care what happened to you,

Being raped is part of being a child,

Being raped is part of attending a university,

Being raped is by fellow service member is

part of serving this country,

Being retaliated against is perfectly fine,

Losing my career thanks to chain of command

is perfectly fine,

Rapist straight up admitting to raping me is

perfectly fine and we will promote him and

send him to another A school so he can continue

to rape over and over and over and over again.

Do not understand,

Can not speak,

Can not sleep,

Can not eat,

Can not keep a job,

Fear of being around people,

Fear of men,

Do not understand why violence is fine

Do not understand why our leaders do not care

Do not understand why rape is fine

Do not understand why murder is fine

Tears streaming,

Seems like no one wants to understand

No one cares

No one cares until it happens to them.

They think they know but they do not have a

clue until it happens to them.

Overcome with sadness, hurt, betrayal.

Am so tired of our society that allows violence
