The girls have failed to speak up
Those who did ended up regretting their actions.
The girls have lost their voices
The girls are being bullied.
Last week, Felicia was raped.
She told her uncle
The words that came out from an educated man sounded
like that of a man who had just drank to stupor.
He blamed her for wearing short dresses
He blamed her for not covering all the part of her body.
“Why are you always dressed that way?”
The most stupid question of the year.
Well, she is clamoring for justice.
Last month Vanessa was raped,
She told her mum.
Cover your mouth
Said her mother
Wipe your tears because no one must hear about this.
This is so shameful that the mouth must not speak.
“My daughter, don’t worry
God will fight for you”
Were the words of her scared mum.
Vanessa has decided to play dumb
So she won’t spill out the beans mistakenly.
Two days ago,
Robbers visited the house of the opulent chief Jaja.
They demanded that the family gathered
Vivian, his daughter decided to sleep
With a short silk dress.
She was raped.
The words of her dad were
I don’t want this to get to the world
You know I am a public figure
Bloggers must not hear of this
Today, Vivian is dead
Of course, depression caused it.
Rape is not a wrong
It is a crime
It is despicable
Stop shaming the victims!
Stop blaming the daughters!
Train the sons
Rebuke the fathers and uncles
Disgrace the pastors and neighbours
The scars may not be visible
But they are in the inner chamber of the mind.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere – Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
Girls can’t dress the way they like
Because if they are raped they will be blamed
The only cause of rape is THE RAPIST
And the most foolish question is
What were you wearing?
Short skirts don’t rape, rapists do.
Don’t let the girls become cowards.
