Faint Footsteps

Faint Footsteps

A Poem by Aliciaa Gay.
"

Topic picked by Kayla. Rape. One of the only things I have not covered.

"
Every 2 minutes, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. In 2007, there were 248,300 victims of sexual assault reported


Beautiful girl
Fourteen in age
Never once understanding
The built up rage
Running to hide
Fighting for her life
You’d never once think
That something was happening at night
Mom has died
Months ago
No one to protect her
Where will she go
Staying with her grandpa
They thought she’d be safe
Never once seeing
The man was a snake
Using hurtful words
Taking her in the night
Everyday it was a battle
To keep herself alive
Hiding places
All of which found
Dragging her out
Slamming her down
Slowly taking her
She won’t make a sound
Nobody knows
How it plays out
He leaves no bruises
No marks to be seen
Instead
He took her virginity
Young girl
Trying to move on
Nothing can fix here
Her reasoning is all gone
She must have provoked him
She’ll never know why
She couldn’t put up a fight.
Young child
This wasn’t because of you
If only someone listened
This wouldn’t have to be true
Beautiful girl
Fourteen in age
Never once understanding
The built up rage
