Over-Comer

the girl, she hides inside
dozes, but never sleeps
keeps one eye open
frozen and broken
her emotions
rarely spoken; much

the girl, she hides inside
won't dress her best
but conceals her appeal
beauty and desire
to heal the hurt

the girl, she hides inside
fucks, but never makes love
cause every time
she makes the climb
she see's his crime
and the slime he left behind

the girl, she hides inside
is innocent, but shamed
too young to oppose
while he unclothed; was
forced to pose as he
enclosed and disposed her

but

the woman in her
has found inner peace
a new lease of self
a way to decrease the scars
and increase the cure †

the woman in her
has found confidence
and a dominance of strength
refuses to be the consequence of him

the woman in her
is no victim nor survivor
but an over-comer
a post war veteran
reverend speaker
against the victimizer
