Trembling hands, a rush of pulse not enough time to bite your nails
why me? why now? who is it? what is he going to do?
so many questions not enough time for answers
what will i do? plan a, plan b, which will i choose?
who says it is up to you?
so you wait… on him to attack first
sitting down panting but trying to keep a cool head, you hear him outside
rocking back and forth to feel a sense of control
This moment, when it is all up to you …
you could live another day and write a poem or this could be it!
but I am not “OK”
For victims who survived or unfortunately suffered from violent attacks, always remember
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
