My Mother Told Me (A touching Writing about Rape)

    By MiCi

    Mother told me
    Life is beautiful
    But she forgot to add
    That there are shades to its color
    Mother told me
    To be careful
    Not to walk alone
    But she never mentioned
    Not to sleep at home
    Mother told me
    My beauty is in and out
    But she never told me
    How to hide its face
    Mother warned me
    Not to spread my legs
    But she never told me
    Of the ones
    who spread it forcefully
    Mother told me
    Of my hymen
    And how it is broken
    On wedding nights
    on special beds
    But she never mentioned predators
    Who take the pride
    Without paying the price
    Mother is thirsty
    Thirsty for blood
    They tore my clothes
    And shredded my pants
    They closed my eyes
    And sealed my lips
    He broke my hymen in haste
    And spilled my redness
    On mother's bed
    Before they took their turns
    Mother watched
    With cold steel to her head
    Hands tied
    And mouth gagged
    She told me
    Life is beautiful
    She must have forgotten
    About these ones

    That erase its colors
