No one ever wishes to be exposed to abuse. We all think it will never happen to us, or decide to live on the hush hush like society has taught us. We say no evil and hear no evil because we live in fear. We fear what people will say, how weak they will think we are but forget about our sanity. We forget how the constant torture will impact us and those around us, that we are not really doing anyone any favors by keeping quiet and enduring.
Soulfulmiss stands together with the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence movement. For the 16 days, 16 poems from different poets will be published on the blog in support of the movement and to raise awareness about the subject as well.
