Know- A Poem

(This poem is reflects my fears about sharing about my history of sex abuse and trafficking.)

If you knew me

Would you point your finger at me

Turn your back against me

Tighten your lips

Into an angry line

If you heard my story

Would your thoughts turn

Like sudden storm clouds

If you sat next to me

Would your back stiffen

Would your hands clench

Would you turn your body away

From my presence

If you knew me—

Really knew me

Would I be alone
