Every day, the news speak of violence against girls, women, babies… how much do we really empathise with them, secure in our own lives?
As we sleep tonight
For the rape hasn’t happened with anyone we know.
As we kiss our daughters good night
For they are safe and with us
As we smile today
For our children are peacefully tucked in their beds
As we plan a tomorrow for our little ones
For its not engulfed in darkness and pain
We must not forget
There are families
That can’t sleep,
Can’t kiss their daughters goodnight,
Can’t smile with them,
Can’t see their children growing up…
Let’s not forget them
Let’s put an end to it
Let’s break the silence
Unite and demand justice.
