POT OF INK series


I battle with the trauma
I live with the memories
I cry in silence
Am dying silently
But I tell no one

My life is sinking
My soul is crying
My oppressor is bragging
But no one is looking

My dignity is stolen
My pride is gone
Am painted with shame
How can I live with this stigma?

You look away
When am not far away
I clamour for attention
But you gave me sanction
Now am defiled
But I tell no one

I will live my life
I will create my world
I will die again, and rise with a strong heart
I will bury my past, and erase your memory
But I tell no one
