I will prevail

I will prevail

You

Kind, gentle, warm

I had so much trust in you

You

Giving, passionate, loving

I felt invincible near you

You

Hidden lies, deceit, anger

It came so fast, I was thrown off track

You

Violence, rage, hate

No regard for the damage you had done to me

You

Rapist, offender, criminal

You stole my soul and my will to live that night

You

Coward, fake, poser

Never admitting the damage that you caused

You

Cocky, confident, arrogant

You will ruin another’s life committing the same crime

You

Hateful, heartless, loner

You will be the one that becomes nothing in the end

You

Cannot hide from the truth forever

You

Will have to live with yourself and the consequences of your actions

You

No longer have control over me

I

Will rise above your evil

I

Will prevail.

My name is Samantha and I am a survivor of rape. I went through the worst experience of my life and it took many, many things from me. It took my happiness for over a year, I lost my salaried job, I lost my apartment, I wasn't able to attend classes regularly, I didn't want to leave bed... everything reminded me of what happened and I feared running into him or his friends. Although he took so much from me and two years of my life are gone that were wasted on trying to heal from the damages, he did not take my voice. I now dedicate my time to educating others on sexual assault and being a voice for the survivors who cannot speak out on their experience.
