Rape Joke Slam Poem

As someone who has an interest in poetry, it was only a matter of time before I would look specifically for poetry written about topics related to my own struggles. I’ve come across this particular slam poem many times and the impact that it has on me never seems to wither. These girls convey such a powerful message about the impact of trauma on the psychological health of a victim, but they also address the overarching issues that exist within society. If you have ever experienced a sexual trauma, I would definitely suggest watching this video. It just might help you feel empowered.
