How much can you protect your girl?
Tell her not to wear something.
“Cover her up.”
Don’t allow her to go anywhere.
“Sit at home.”
She doesn’t need education
She doesn’t need to think for herself.
She shouldn’t be able to tell right from wrong.
Don’t allow her to speak.
Don’t allow her to have her own voice.
Think like the society.
Do as the society desires.
“What will the neighbours say, if they find out?”
Don’t allow her to go to people’s houses because you don’t know what happens behind Thier closed doors.
But do you know what happens behind yours?
“What will people think of us?”
You won’t be safe anywhere but home…
But that’s the last place I feel safe.
From secret touches,
To mysterious bruises.
You have to keep quiet
Because “what you say will never be true.”
“No one will believe you.”
Since now you’re filthy,
Who would want damage goods?
So you keep the secret like an unlucky truth.
Eating you from inside.
But you can’t keep quiet anymore.
Because the screams from within are only getting louder.
And you can feel,
Something else is slaughtered within you.
