She

Listen to the painful life she overcame
Then if you feel her heat you can listen to her flame
Listen to her knowledge and listen to her change
Through years of shedding tears she’s been ridiculed, ashamed

Listen to the strength of his voice when he speaks
Words which cut and slice so quickly,
To wound like knives beneath the skin deep,
As we listen to the silence caused by years of such violence,

[Hata Bildir]
