Mum couldn’t afford a meal
Dad had just lost his job
Poverty couldn’t pay our bill
Hardship made them a slob.
Mum took me to her brothers place
To ensure they take care of me
Was happy seeing my uncles face
As happy as a buzzing bee.
I was only twelve in twenty ten(2010)
My uncle will come suck my breast
Stop, stop and stop uncle Ben
But wouldn’t until its off my chest.
He did this almost everyday
When his wife must have gone out
He called it a romantic play
Was painfully fun, no doubt.
Never knew prepared me for sex
Which was against my will
Nestling with him became complex
If I say a word me he would kill.
Then the night, the night came
Only darkness present non around
Yes! To my room, my room he came
Even the ground didn’t hear a sound.
He took off his clothe and shot
Rubbing an ointment below
Am your daughter not a slut
Shutup just give me a blow.
Scared and chartered for my life
In my room with nobody there
No kids not even his wife
Loosing my virginity I so fear.
I screamed and shouted in silence
As he drew and spread my legs
I cried and refused compliance
Yet, he hurriedly hung my legs.
I begged I was young and tender
It wouldn’t hurt, don’t shout
While he spoke I saw a pretender
It should never be spoken about.
Struggled from bed to the floor
With bruises all over my body
Tumbled from window to the door
As I screamed “this will be bloody”
He tied my hands, my hands aback
And forcefully force himself inside
I screamed and screamed Alack
Let God, let He who made me decide.
My claws dug deep down the wall
As he spins up,down like heart beat
Shut up, who would you call
My voice couldn’t more than a goats bleat.
My flower added De- as it got burst
And the silky sheet soaked in blood
He didn’t stop, he continued in lust
Oh! And the blood became a flood.
He raped me of my innocence
My own uncle, yes uncle Ben did
Am sure he had no penitence
God shouldn’t forgive his deed.
When they heard it, nothing was done
And so, yes so I lost my Gold
Many girls out their with a son
From Rape, Abuse yet UNTOLD.
SAY NO TO RAPE!!
