Had I looked back

The concrete four walls of my house succeeded in sheltering me from the big bad world to hold my soul as a hostage. Scared and mentally raped was I, in the shackles of matrimony which I perceived as a safe passage from the orphanage to freedom.
I broke opened the cage and escaped. Escaped into the bondage of flesh-trade where money exchanged hands and I became a commodity.

I stood tall. My next step forward would free me. My spirit came tearing down. Had I looked back, today, I wouldn't be at the Gates of Heaven to rest in peace.
