"ALMOST A VICTIM" is a poem by Gladys Njehu; Its flow and plot thrilled me and I have to share this with you.
ALMOST A VICTIM
It wasn't in the dark,
Nor was i in a park,
No light of the moon,
As it was at noon.
Thought it was hot as he undressed,
But he grabbed me and caressed,
Held me tight,tighter,n tighter,
Thought i couldn't be a fighter.
Realizing i was in a battlefeild,
But had no sheild,
I felt weak,
As i tried to speak,
And be freed.
I even opted to scream,
As if that was the theme,
Miraculously i think the gods spoke,
Though they didn't poke.
Or rather his senses got to work,
As before he was acting like a jerk.
And almost a victim,
Out i kicked him,
My very own friend,
Opted to offend,
Wonder whether we'll amend.
