Ask First

Victims are not just that
we break out of that prison
more often than we remain within in.
It is not of our own making.
Don’t doubt our reality
what we know and what we say
just believe that there is strength
in our fraialty and so much more.

We stand together and seperate
we don’t need solidarity but want it,
help is pushed on us, like so much else
it wasn’t what we asked for either.
Sometimes we just need to be heard
sometimes we just need to be left alone.

You just need to ask first.
