Rapists in Uniform

Cursed was that night,
The night my flesh was a feast for the nine wolves…
I wailed,
I Resisted
Kicked and Pushed,
But the devils nailed my hands on the floor,
Resistance, they said, will only bring more pain and tortures…
Therefore, I gave up!
Gave up on life as I was surrounded by the herd of wolves,
One after the other
The stole my innocence of being a woman,
My Somali pride,
My hope of being protected by my people,
My faith in humanity: why have we become incarnated devils?
My self respect: I can no longer look in the mirror.
The rapists in the uniform stole my identity!
