TW: Rape, suicide, PTSD, violence, mention of murder. I wrote this directly about being a rape survivor, it is triggering.
I performed this in front of a class as my “Liberating Action” Project and its very personal and vulnerable and its not a piece I’d ever use for slam/performance so yeah I am posting it really only for the poem which I am still very proud of because it’s probably one of the most powerful personal pieces I’ll ever write.
I just gave it the same title as the paper I wrote that went with it, “Present Tense Survivor.”
