#Metoo: Diary of a 21 year old who had to convey a lot


 
#Metoo

Social media platforms have once again made us realize that “together we really can”. Today, we feel privileged to share the diary of a 21 year old, who wanted to shout out loud and made the world listen to her, at least once.

 

 

As we all are aware about “#Metoo” and we are hoping if all the people who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote “Me too” as a status, we might give others a sense of the magnitude of the problem. However, you could also get some sense out of the “unspoken words” written below from the pen of the one who had to convey a lot.


#Metoo


I still remember

I was just 1.5 or may be 2 years old
I knew him..I still know him
I used to like days
And hate those nights
That feeling ..That unwanted touch
Could never understand
How to say and what to say
I had no idea
What I was going through
He used to love me
The way he wanted to
He was known
Always
Sometimes he was also replaced
By some unknown faces
Yet all of them are same
Those friends of families 
Those hands and fake smileys
I could feel 
I really can
I knew the difference
But could not speak
I knew how to speak
Yet could not speak
No matter how old I was
I felt the touch
But the most sad thing to recall is
I know them
I still face them
I still have to respect them
I have to
Because
#Metoo
I want to go back to the days of past
And make them feel the same pain
That I felt
Those wounds on my heart
It hurts ..It still hurts
Yes..#Metoo
Believe me.. it’s not just about
You and Me
Or
He and She
It’s about each one of us
Somehow somewhere
It has been a part
Of your life
Whatever happened you can’t change
But
At least for the sake of that pain
Don’t let it ever happen to the ones
You care
And to the ones
You don’t even care
I still wonder if I could ever say it with the ones
I should have said it much before
But nothing could be changed now
I can’t change my past
But, I have this one remaining life
To change my future
And the future of my dear ones
This is something that stays with you
Every moment
This is something way beyond just #Metoo
If you could connect..
Don’t feel ashamed to spread my words 
You know why
Because
Not just #Metoo
#Youtoo
