Survivor

(Featured in fine print below)

 

You are not a man,

you are just a child 

in a grown man's body

who tricked, 

and robbed me

of my dignity.

I felt deprived 

of my humanity,

lost grip 

on the rope

of my sanity; 

redefined myself 

using only profanity,

died inside and tried

being born again,

through Christianity—

because I had never met 

someone before 

with such a severe degree 

of barbarity. 

I wish you had the capacity 

of understanding

how much 

you have hurt me, 

but that’d require 

a basic level of empathy;

when deep down inside

I think we both know—

you are empty.

So, 

the next step was

fighting for my life back

relentlessly,

and in the process—

growing up tremendously.

I am the woman 

I am today,

because of you 

treating me horrendously;

but I can honestly say,

I think I'm turning out 

splendidly.

- Ruby
