The Kindest Victim
By Julius Kane
The Kindest Victim Never Says A Word!
Inner scars are hard to see. You and I know
a quiet victim says-
“You’re excused for hurting me”
The kindest victim may not scream,
but can at least whisper a name.
You’re not brave for keeping it in
while your offender offends
again and again.
See, no two victims die the same.
But most victims don’t die from being victimized,
most victims die of shame.
