You're You

You're You

A Poem by Kim Jimenez

A mother’s love despite the nightmare of her reality


Twinkling eyes,

Heart melting smiles;

Held my fingers tight,

What a beautiful sight;


Cries loudly,

Then sleeps soundly;

The life’s answer,

To start a new chapter;


A beautiful present,

From my broken fragment;

A lovely miracle,

To what I thought an obstacle;


I’ll protect you my child,

From animals that run wild;

Animals that came at night,

And attack with all their might;


Forgive me my son,

I intended to run;

Understand my weak heart,

Who wants to break us apart;


But now I know,

Your father doesn’t define you;

You’re a blessing,

To create another ending;


We’re both victim,

Of my life’s awful theme;

Rape maybe our core,

But our lives meant more;


You existed for me,

You completed me;

The light that shines,

Which darkness defines;


And if one day,

Truth comes your way;

Know that I love you,

Because you’re you.

Created a fictional story about a rape victim and it’s child. Inspired by the show I watched 2 weeks ago wherein the victims were fighting their rights against a law permitting the abuser to have a custody of their child.
