The Truth About Denial

The Truth About Denial

A poem by guest writer ABBEY SCHLAGETER

We say we believe in human rights,
and women’s rights too..

we say we stand for survivors..
but that’s seldomly ever true
for when the time to stand up comes
and fight the oppressive acts
we cower in the corner,
and deny all the facts.
So what about women?
And daughters of men?
because when you refuse 
to see the truth
you betray yourself again...
Stop being your worst enemy...
and contributing to the hate.
Because there is nothing positive 
In supporting abusive mates.
-AS
