Goosebumps. Reply Speechless♥ Reply oof that lowkey got to me Reply I am sorry. Reply I did not like the audience. Reply Finished it and now going back to the beginning because I have to hear it again Reply I’ve committed this to memory. Forever love you Kev Reply Why am i crying in the work place Reply Love how theres a facebook plug in the description Reply So damn powerful. People like this guy inspire me to write poetry. Reply This is so important, every one needs to listen to this Reply This gets me every time. I basically watch it everyday. Reply Doesn't anyone else think he looks like phil lester?? Reply NO ONE COMES RUNNING FOR ANYBODY WHO CRIES RAPE! NOT JUST LITTLE BOYS Reply This shows everyone that some people try to fight back but no matter how hard they try, no matter how loud they are, no matter how many times they say 'NO!' it's harder than you think to fight back, no matter the gender. Rape is a serious matter and if you use rape and stereotypes/ gender roles, in the same sentence; take yourself back and start educating yourself and ASK OTHERS WHO PASSED THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE AND TO WHOM MANY FELT AT FUALT AND WANTED TO RUN AWAY FROM THEIR SKIN BUT COULDN'T! to those whom suffered for days. "How do you feel? Is there any way where you could feel comfortable in your own skin? How can I comfort you? Is there anything you would like to tell everyone?" Every question can be interpreted any way. So can anything else. But sometimes they aren't looked in the purpose they're supposed to be looked and taken. Reply This poem means allot to me because I was raped when I was 13. Ever since I was raped the photo of him that shows up every time I open my friends request or every time facebook decides to suggest him as a friend plague me. I wonder about his life and his family I have even looked through his photos hoping to see pictures of his mother who was a parent to me. I wonder who he is now after 6 years and if he remembers me. I wonder what he would say to me if I accepted his request Reply This is incredible! Reply I come back to this not as a survivor…but as a supporter Reply OMG! Wow.. thank you for this👏🏾🔥 Reply I get shivers when I hear these because of how incredibly powerful Reply You sweet, beautiful man. This poem broke my heart a thousand times, and it is so so horrifying what happened to you. You're so incredibly brave and the way you weave your words is crazy powerful. Reply Amazingly powerful. Writing my name at the top of that list. Reply GET THEM KING Reply I really love this poem, Sucks his brothers name is the same as my rapists and now I can't watch it without feeling as if I am back in the room with him, just as powerless as before Reply Kevin, I love your spirit and your courage. Reply I can't control my tears help. This is so good. Reply "I call him the Wolf. To make him seem as story book as possible." That hit me deep. Because I call my rapist monster, to prove that they exist, but no one believes in them or the people that claim to see them Reply His voice is deeper than I expected Reply " no is a flock of sleeping sheep sitting in my mouth" Reply who's here bcs of AMA o-ed???? HAHAHHAHA Reply So powerful… extremely powerful! Reply Nothing but chills for this piece❤️ Reply I absolutely love this poem, it is powerful and inspiring to those who have been there ❤ Reply No one comes running for the girl passed out on a bed…who cried rape Reply so powerful Reply every time i watch this i get chills and i think about a person in my life who was assaulted and my heart aches for them . also i’m coming to terms with my own assault and this is just so powerful i cry every time . Reply please someone let this guy read this comment… im sorry.. you are brave… sorry…i know it doesnt help but.. but sorry Reply Just another heads up that Kevin uses they them pronouns and no longer identifies as a boy. Reply Wolf……very good brother…. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
