#MeToo: Sterling Sinclair, A Sexual Assault Survivor, Reads a Poem about the Quest for Truth, October 17, 2017

  
Sterling Sinclair Reads the Poem 

#metoo I wrote this poem a few years back. It concludes: I keep walking into tomorrow, no matter what happened to me yesterday. I do not know your pain. But I know the feeling of keeping sexual assault buried in secret vaults at which I laid flowers of grief for many years. I am still not sure if opening the vault was a good idea. We all deal with assault differently and in our own ways. I think that is why I like this poem so much. It asks unanswerable questions but speaks to heart of survival.
Much love, S
