Still A Survivor

I wasn’t violently abused, but I was still raped, and I’m still a survivor.

I never said no, but I never said yes either. It wasn’t consent. I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

I still doubt what happened wasn’t my fault. I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

I knew the guy and was friend’s with his wife. I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

All the excusing out there don’t matter. I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

I’ve started to heal but I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

I go to bed every night and don’t know if I’ll have nightmares or not. I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

I never know when I will be triggered. I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

I will someday overcome this. But I was still raped and I’m still a survivor.

 Yes, I was raped and I’m still a survivor.
