Sitting in front of the screen
I strain my eyes
In the online archives
Sixty of them
In four days
As I finish scanning them
for the words
‘Rape’, ‘sexual assault’ and ‘sexual harassment’
Reflecting that the world is a bad place
I ask my feelings to disappear
Because I am a student of journalism
Reporting about reportage of rape.
I’m short of words to describe how I have been feeling these days.
