A tribute to all the people out there who have been abused. Let their voices be heard, let their anguish not be in vain.
Standing tall but cowering inside,
No one to talk to, no one to confide.
Told to keep mum, told to behave,
Made to play dumb, need to be saved.
Forever stranded, feelings disregarded
Like a rag doll that’s been discarded.
Reaching out but gone unnoticed,
The future so out of focus.
Forced to obey, forced to stay,
Can anyone understand the pain?
Afraid to speak out, drowning in shame,
A tool in a wretched game.
We are the abused, the castaways,
Ignored and refused, life in decay.
See us for the hurt, see us for the pain,
Let our voice be heard, let our anguish not be in vain.
