You brought me to a place
Which you consider as a second home
The door opened, and boys came out one by one
"I'd like you to meet your cousins."
I was scared and I hid behind you
You placed your hands on my shoulders and said
"Oh dear, don't be scared. They're here to protect you."
"They'll make you feel safe. I promise."
I hold on to your words
And sure, I had fun with them
I became comfortable with their company
but that was just a dream that felt surreal.
I do not know if I was dreaming, but one night,
One of them caressed my cheek
and slowly planted kisses on my face
Mom, I do not know if I was dreaming
but he was taking advantage of the situation
Mom, I do not know what was happening
his hands were all over my body
Mom, I do not know what to do
but when I was about to scream
he placed his lips on mine
and I... I felt helpless.
Mom, you told me they would protect me
but mom, they made me feel ashamed
Mom, you told me I would feel safe
but mom, why is that nightmare haunting me every night?
