Survivor


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.
