November 8th- November 14th, 2020
My name is Samiat Ibrahim. I am from Lagos state, Nigeria and I love to draw.
The title of this artwork is "HEAL" and it was created for the purpose of spreading awareness. This is a little write-up I made to complement my artwork.
Distorted emotions, A lot forgot,
A lot buried.
Was there a time I ever felt genuine happiness?
I cannot remember...
Happy memories lost, but the pain remains.
I smile a lot but the void in me broadens.
When did it all start?
Even before I was a woman! Different faces, different times, different places, but I never said "touch me" to anyone, so why did you all? "NO!", but you pulled me closer."STOP!", but you touched me all over.
I struggled, but you overwhelmed me.
Overpowered by my fears.
Unable to speak.
I stare into space and hope the words unspoken could be seen through me.
I wish to cry,
I wish to scream,
I wish to let it all out.
But instead I choose to forget, move on and remain strong.
I really hope you heal.
