You are the process that makes it equivalent.
You are the dividend, extra parts on lay away.
Learn to sit like the remainder.

It's hard now as I sit back and realize that I wasn't aware,
wasn't affected.
It was so distant to me--
I didn't know any victims,
wasn't aware of any victimizers.
It was the type of thing that happened to other people in other cities,
not my friends in my town.
I look back in pain
wondering how I could have been so naive.
I only know two women that I am close to
that have not been raped or abused,
and the number of men
that I am close that I really know
haven't raped or abused is even less.
I try and try to stop this revolving door of manipulation and abuse,
but the pressure seems to crush me,
for I am only one.
It will take more than one broken spoke to stop this wheel so strong from turning.
I will try and I might fail,
but there will still be one who will not contribute,
one who will not continue,
one who will not take,
and one who will not rape.
