Reach out for help,

Go to appointment with therapist,

Told by therapist,

“No need to talk about what happened to you”

“Stop writing poetry about the rape”

“you have talked about the rape enough”

I shut down,





Come home,



I will not stop talking about what happened

To me,

I will not be silenced by you or any one else.

Talking and writing my poetry is the way I heal.
