Shame

Seeking pleasure through pain inflicted,
Stealing a person’s safety and security,
Forcing yourself inside someone’s sanctuary,
Physical pain is not what hurts the most,
It is fear; not knowing who you can trust,
Couldn’t see his face but smelled his cologne,

Was it because of the Islamic attire?
Were you sitting and watching cars?
Will I ever feel safe again?
Could I have done something?
Should I have fought back?
What did I do wrong?
Did I deserve it?
Why me?

Imagine walking through hallways,
Not sure if it was one of your friends,
Or if it was a stranger,
Was it a student or faculty member,
