The Quiet Rose


Dethorned, she had no voice.

The rape stripped it away.

She had nowhere to turn.

She lived another day.

She spent eight years trying.

She spent eight years dying.

Dethorned, she had no voice.




One day, she found her voice.

It was weak, but present.

Dethorned, she found some strength.

She nurtured herself, too.

And bit by bit, she grew.

She is not quiet now.

She sings loudly, with pride.

She grew a strong backbone.

She does not have to hide.

She has suffered enough.

She dealt with it; it’s done.

Re-thorned, she loves herself.

Re-thorned, her life’s begun.
