Treasure Island

Aimanu Begum


A woman is just dead flesh


Dark fear plagues my mind,
I dare not go out.
The streets are full
with prowling scavengers.
They do not wait
for my death.
I am already dead
a woman, just flesh.







: A humble tribute to all the Bravehearts
who were victims of sexual crime.

    A nice tribute...I guess women stood stand up against such crimes and men should change their mindsets and stop treating women as toys.Tfs. (Report) Reply
