STOP! I should have said,
When you were rubbing yourself on my back.
Am I just a piece of meat you can feast,
When you’re in heat?
I was numb,
I was scared.
Is my dress too short?
Am I wearing too sexy?
Is it even my fault?
LOOK! I could have been your mom, sister, daughter, or even your wife.
Would you let someone do this to them?
Could you look straight into their eyes at night?
Or you just lust for them like you did mine?
I was so frightened,
I kept my silence.
Lots of people around me but not a soul noticed.
I feel dirty!
God, I’m stupid!
LISTEN! I am a human, I am a WOMAN.
A little respect would be nice.
If you will treat us bad, please think twice.
Give us some compassion,
Give us love.
Treat us with sincerity,
Treat us as equals.
Let me remind you,
We gave you LIFE.
