While dating, he emotionally abused me.
Blinded by love, convinced myself,
“He will change.”
Any mistake is rewarded by
a slap on my rosy cheeks.
Imprisonment came to existence
when he paid my bride price.
Exhausted from work,
Rape is his solution in the name of
Being his property.
Telling my friends they quote,
“It is the taste of marriage.”
My daily bread is being beaten.
Being his specimen for excessive child bearing.
I was once that attractive rose,
Now a dry leaf with no life.
I want to voice out,
Strength of their hand overpower me.
Society not an exception,
They say i am week by default.
Looking for employment,
Gate pass is them feasting on me.
Strength of their hand destroy
I sit and ponder,
Who will espy my agony?
So according to me #StewieLeSavage today we celebrate the forth day of the 16 days of activism against gender based violence with Trevor Virima
