During the first year of my degree as a journalism student, I made a documentary on harassment as a class project. While making this documentary I realized that the place of a woman in our society is the same as that of a deer in the jungle. Thus, I wrote this piece of poetry in order to reflect my feelings on this issue and how I perceive it.

Like a deer in the Jungle,

My heart is full of fear

Because I know I am vulnerable

Vulnerable to your desires and your hunger

I will always remember

The words of my mother

A deer should never go out alone in the jungle

And in case you will raise your gaze

I should stay quiet

And walk away

Because apparently, I am  weaker

Weaker than your hunger, your desire

Now I can hear your steps coming closer

So I try to walk faster

But I can feel your claws on my back

Oh God! it hurts, how sharp is that.

……………………………………………….

…………………………………………….

Like the king of the jungle

You have satisfied your hunger

While my body lies on the ground

Torn, dead and shattered.
