I ask you why?

Why did you beat me

Morning, noon and night

You didn’t care

But why?

Why did you all abuse me?

You used me for your own reward

But why?

Why did you rape me?

Just a child, I was

But why?

Why did I survive?

Why am I living?

When you all tried to destroy me

You made me a victim

But why?

I survived so I am a survivor

I am a warrior and I am here

You aren’t here to answer why?

You were all weak

You were all cowards

You were all beaten by ME

Year’s ago, in therapy I was asked to write letters to my abusers and then burn them!

I couldn’t but here are questions I would have asked!
