Victims Suffer, Survivors Speak

Here stands Dave

Some say, “he’s brave”

David says, “I am not, I am just trying to help others and to understand the past”,

David thinks ‘in speaking out, it will help other people and the traumatic feelings will no longer last’,

One man shouted, “he’s an attention seeker”,

David thought ‘You clearly know nothing about me, I’m not an attention seeker but I am Mild & Meeker’,

The same person shouted, “he has little to offer”,

David thought ‘you’re a battered old coffer, containing nothing more than a bottle stopper’,

The same person shouted, “he’s a self-promoter”,

David thought ‘we will leave that decision with the voters’,

The same person shouted, “he’s not worthy of our political party’s branch”,

David thought ‘At the next election I will give the electorate an alternative choice from an independent’s ranch’,

So far David has contested the County Council Election once and the District Elections twice,

So far David has been successful in elections not once, not twice but thrice,

Another man shouted, “His problems (including the historical abuse) are down to him & not other people”,

With that comment David just wanted to hang the ignorant man from the church steeple,

The man certainly hadn’t researched the topic of abuse, if he had it would’ve been a gain,

He considered himself to be an expert, if he was, he would know abuse survivors are never to blame,

The same man added “He thinks he’s better than everyone including me”,

David thought ‘I am totally the opposite of your summary’,

The same man was David’s so called ‘Trusted Friend’,

He used David’s traumatic past and information from counselling sessions to help him to manipulate and bend,

My name is David, these days I am rarely called Dave,

I am no longer anyone’s slave,

If I can achieve you can too,

You many know bullies & I certainly know a few,

I am a survivor not a victim, Victims suffer, survivors speak.
