Break Your Silence
Written by Selvin ‘Ewan’ McRae /

Break your silence hun don’t be afraid
Speak your mind ma’ tell it to that friend
Let your voice be heard don’t be scared
There are a lot more like you out there

I see you hiding under those shades
All swollen, battered and bruised
With a straight face, holding your head up high
Yet in your eyes I can tell your smile is a lie

Break your silence girl I’m listening
This is abuse don’t make it a secret
Break your silence, tell it to me
And remember after abuse, it is decease

Over a million abused each year worldwide
Some has never recovered because they died
Took it all in the name of love but love lied
Only because this thing called love is blind

Set your self free, tell it to me
Of course change is in me likewise he
But if you continue to cover for him
The change in him you’ll never see

Break your silence and set your self free

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
