Write a new post in response today’s word ‘Protest’

Her tender arms
Could not resist
The brutal force
Of animal instinct

The lecherous look
Of a trusted relative
Scared her to death
Beneath the sheets

Gagged by social stigmas
No one dared speak
A silent protest
Wearily fell asleep

The morning sun breathed hope
And a new resolve
She would be slave no more
To a heartless enemy

A new strength, A new voice
A freedom, A choice
Wiping tears of self-pity
She crushed fake loyalties

A silent protest became a storm
Truth had gathered an army
Of brave soldiers
A leader was born!
