Dedicated to the Survivors of Military Sexual Trauma

©2009 Syneeda Penland

Pain is what I felt
when I was belittled to nothing less,
causing grief and anxiety;
feelings of hopelessness.

When I was forced to submit to:
verbal, physical, unremitting sexual abuse,
being used and dispose of is inhumane.
There’s no excuse!

Escaping from this demon,
on the run to try and hide,
seeking to escape the insecurities
of what I feel inside.

Left emotionally and physically scarred
from the pain,
years of living in hell, purgatory!
LORD, please help me,
release me from these chains!
