No

"Don't say no, listen to your elders." 

At 10, life was sweet, obedience was the key.
No saying no and listening to mum because what if she hit me? 
No saying no because father shouts slurs at me if I disrupt his match,
I am happy though.

"Don't let anyone one touch you here, here and here; say no"

At 11, saying no seems implausible,
What if they hit me too? I don't understand. 
I can't say no, because what if they get mad.
I'm alright.

"Don't say no I'm a lonely old man, let's be friends" 
Sure! Gladly!
"Don't say no, you're almost 12, a grown woman, you should know about this stuff."
Yes. It's all good.
"Don't say no, I'm a lonely old man, wear nothing but shorts and a camisole the next time we meet"
Um okay.
"Don't say no, just play along with the game"
Uh it's just a game? Alright.
"Don't scream no, I'm a lonely old man, just let it in, it'll feel good" 
....

At 11, I didn't say no, something was wrong , but I didn't scream for help. 
I was not alright.
I didn't know what to do.

At 13, I realize what I let happen to me, Clearly, it was my fault for not saying "no"?
I'm not okay.
I just wish someone would listen.

At 14, what could I do now, even as I scream "no" at others now,
They think I'm a raging bitch. 
My mother hates me,
My wrists and thighs are splattered in cuts.

At 15, I'm disgusting, and I'm depressed I don't say anything at all, 
I just write a suicide note for my best friend.
I almost kill myself.


At 17, still depressed but I've found my voice. 
I'm doing better. 


Please scream "no" because your body is yours;
Please scream "no" because trust is earned;
Please scream "no" because elders don't always deserve respect;
Please, scream "no" at the top of your lungs because it will make or break you.
Never let anyone tell you otherwise.
