A Poem: If She had Stopped for a Minute more

She stood at the edge of the cliff the memories of the past day fresh in her mind.

She was beyond hurt, she was beyond scarred. 

She couldn’t describe her heart that had been charred. 

He didn’t have her consent, nor had he her desperate pleads. 

She was forced to endure the pain only because he wanted to satisfy his needs. 

She wouldn’t dare call them needs as they were driven by the disgusting lustrous mind. 

The prince had taken away her pride, her control and her mental stability. 

She knew nothing else to do rather than let go of her tranquility. 

She had been taught not to end her life in such a way, 

However if questions were to be arised he couldn’t possibly stay. 

Her clothes had been ripped in the places one would hope not to stain, 

Her cries during that night had simply gone to vain. 

Let bygones be bygones didn’t seem to make it right, 

For anyone to rape a woman using their might. 

Countless stories like hers had been told, 

Yet people don’t understand like it’s something old. 

It has happened before and will continue to happen, 

Until we make it clear and say it loud, 

She stepped away from the edge of that cliff, 

And screamed towards the village as loud as she could, 

“It was his fault not mine! So why should I end my life afraid to shine!

No matter how much you try to conceal, it will once unveil,

Before your eyes one will stand and they will speak ill of the crime, 

Then you will all understand the pain caused by a disgusting human!

Until then, I will preach and until then I will stand against those who commit this crime, 

I am Lucretia of Rome, this is what I say and you shall take it as you may!

I have been raped by the prince but I do not wince, 

I am strong and I am brave, I will defeat those you crave, 

Those who crave not love but only lust alone, 

I shall show them their place, using a heavy mace.

That will not be a crime but a war for justice, 

Putting to shame those who don’t trust us, 

This is my oath to those whom I loath.

Free your mind, free your speech, 

Seek justice from those and preach!
