Unfair rights

How does he have more rights than me?
How is that even fair?
How does he walk around so free?
It’s like they just don’t care

They say that he has human rights
That bail isn’t fair
But what about the rights of me
The victim he did snare

He’s under investigation
That is what they say
But that won’t make him tremble
For he always gets his way

Am I being punished?
For speaking up, telling the truth?
I feel like I am back there
Back inside my youth

I am being tortured
Abused now once again
The memories that haunt me
The nightmares never end

He is working, living free
Not an ounce of fear
He took my life, my freedom
But doesn’t shed a tear

How can I leave my house again?
When he could be outside the door?
How can I make my legs move
I want to crumple on the floor

How can I feel safe inside?
He could be right here
Working through anxiety
I cry another tear

I’m the victim, told my truth
This system seems unfair
He is the criminal, the abuser
Yet weight on my shoulders bears

This system is so flawed
New rules need to be built
For he can live in freedom
While I fight to prove his guilt

I’m the one who’s fighting
Who’s battling to survive
I’m the one who’s fighting
For my freedom he deprived

Two years I have been battling
To be heard and listened to
I know that I cannot give up
I have to see this journey through

Justice and recovery
I know I do deserve
But little did I realise
How many times this path would curve

It keeps getting harder
To find the strength within
For each time I think the end is near
Another chapter does begin

I am tired and afraid
This is a lonely, scary walk
But finally I am learning
It is OK to talk

I know I have to find the strength
To make it to the end
Because that is the only way
My heart and soul will mend

He doesn’t think I’ll see this through
He doesn’t see I’ve made my choice
Because to save myself and others
I know I have to use my voice.
