What do you gain when you do the unthinkable
What goes through your mind when you make your fellow human feels pain
You lack self-control
The instrument between your legs wasn’t given to you
To cause harm or inflict injury
When you engage in the gruesome act does your conscience
Not prick you?
And then your fellow rape apologists go about asking what she wore
They never deemed it fit to ask why you lack self-control
Why you weren’t trained properly
Why you felt comfortable treating girls like trash.
We are tired
We’re tired of not being comfortable even in our homes
We’re tired of looking back multiple times
On the street
We’re tired of being scared to go out at night
We’re tired of being the prey.
