you murdered my pride when you repeatedly cursed me with your words.
your words that appeared to be deadlier than any weapon in this world.
it hurt me so bad i could die a million death, it hurt me so bad.
those words, your words, you use them to cut the deepest wound.
you murdered my pride.
you ruined my dreams.
you toppled down my spirit.
everytime you open your mouth
no mercy is your game.
and i, i am your willing victim.
oh, i used to be your willing victim. ‘cos i chose to free myself from your pride and ego; from your temper and disposition.
you no longer have the power to hurt me. not now. not tomorrow. not ever.
no mercy, my game today.
i had a recent conversation with two (2) college girls sharing thoughts about a college professor who blatantly told his studentst “girls should dress appropriately so that boys/men won’t have the reason to be tempted to harass them. it is the girls’/women’s responsibility to dress and act accordingly and never give any man the reason”. how sick could this college professor be? really? seriously? i couldn’t believe that we have men like this in our academic institutions. these men do not desereve to be where girls/women are expected to be protected and boys/men are expected to be taught to always by all means respect girls/women. no matter what and regardless of. point in case mr. professor, how do you explain kids/minors/children being molested/raped by sick adult men? how do you explain the case of a fully covered religious woman walking being raped? how do you explain the case of a college girl in full school uniform being sexually assaulted by a male friend?
its about time we re assess the way we view abuse and violence.
because in case you are not aware rape is rape no matter what, especially in the absence of consent. abuse is still abuse regardless of.
women have the right to live free from violence, even men too. violence of any form should never be tolerated.
as we celebrate WOMEN’S MONTH, let us together work hand in hand and rally a community to help everyone in situation where violence is present.
remember, violence could happen to anyone. even to the most beautiful, most succeessful woman who see every morning on your way to work.
and then help.
