The Girls that will Never be Safe

Across this world. Girls will never be truly safe.

There will always be someone.

Whether an old man who catcalls her on the street.

A younger man, in his 20s, who forced himself on her.

A teenager who takes advantage of her body.

“You should be proud of your body! You have so many curves!” Her mother smiled, not bothering to look at the broken eyed girl who longed to die.

None of the men got in trouble.

“Men have their needs.” That's what the judge told the girl who was silently crying.

That one family wished they could change something as they cried over the girls grave.
