IN SEARCH OF AN ADVOCATE By Umm Anas Bint Yakub
Swimming through the ocean of doubt,
Drowning in the pool of disgrace
Mentally and physically drained.
Who will she call on or look up to
Her zeal is gone
Deep down in confusion.
Who will be proud to have her?
Is she going to withstand the future?
What about the present torment?
Yet to be dealt with.
Such an unforgettable event
Only the divine miracle protects one’s pride
Being robbed off her right.
The assaulters get not the blame.
And the tears, streaming down has become a routine.
While she becomes the object of mockery
Or, at the least, that of pity.
This is just undescribable
Gender dichotomy, out of dilemma
Such a trauma that deny deserved progress
Who will give a platform for projection?
She has a voice but cannot be heard.
Many of such scenario has resulted to suicide
While some end up with several immoralties.
Yet, very few were able to find their purpose
Despite the trauma.
She needs to walk again, lend a hand.
She walks with dignity and prestige, right from childhood.
Until her pride was forcefully taken away.
Her confidence gradually faded away.
She is still a rightful member
Of the family, the community and the nation.
She should be free and have the utmost support.
The one whom you stole her dignity,
Remember she’s a mother like your mother
A sister like the one you have.
And someone’s daughter just like you hope to have or has.
Shun being a rapist and support the VICTIMs
