THE SILENT VICTIM~by Mxolisi Ñ Nkambule




She is abused emotionally and physically.
Her lips are shaking,
Her lips were crushed.
They received a lot of punches,
Tearing apart.
Her body is frozen,
She is full of scars on her face.
That pretty face is destroyed.
You’re eminent towards her.
Her heart beat can’t hold up any longer.

Stop asking questions,
The tears are talking,
The scars are evidence,
Her voice was taken.
She is linger,
She was rapped, nearly killed.
Take the finger prints.
The punches she got will reveal the culprit.

She find life rareness,
She’s having sleepless nights,
She’s crying inside her heart full of hopelessness.
Her life is vulnerable,
The pains she experienced are unbearable.
She’s a woman like your mother.
Why you make her you punching bag,
She’s begging for mercy.
Please !.. Please..! Have mercy please …
Her voice is shutting down like a flat battery.
While you so mercilessly full of cruelty.
I wonder if her silent voice will ever be heard.
Because even her friends no longer care.
God wipe her tears and fight for her.
She’s a silent victim, only you can hear her.
A silent victim.
