Over 15 women have come forward accusing Legendary Comedian Bill Cosby of raping and/or sexually assaulting them. There appeared to be doubt in the beginning about the legitimacy of the claims. As the numbers grow, so are people's suspicions. I wrote a poem about it. Like to hear it...here it go.

Our Voice 

by Nicole Jocleen

As a woman am I that manipulative

That vindictive

That uncommitted

That your ears block out my whimper

My cries

My screams

As abrasive as I may seem

Sometimes bad things happen to me

Like abuse

Molestation

Rape

Or whatever the case

We stay silent because we can’t handle your doubt

When we finally speak up

Were told to shut up

For just now speaking

Especially if were speaking of someone with clout

Well, how bout

As a woman am I that manipulative

That vindictive

That uncommitted

That your ears ignore my whimper

My cries

My screams

As abrasive as I may seem

Sometimes bad things happen to me.
