SHUT-UP!

Have you ever had a story to share,

But you’ve been silenced?

You feel as if you’re shouting,

Yet itsi coming out as faint whispers.

No one wants to listen.

Have you ever been beaten,

But no one would listen?

Cried out for help,

But they think you’re crazy.

Nah, what’s crazy is constantly being

abused and raped, but no one wants

to listen.

The woman is blamed for looking too

pretty, having too little clothes.

The woman is blamed for “his” aggression.

She’s told SHUT-UP!

Dont fight!

Submit!

Give up!

See me, I can’t be silenced.

My story is too big.

&& I have kids.

It’s getting to the point,

this pain I can’t bare.

And so far this fight isn’t fair 😭

How do you see the light when the

sunshine is no longer bright.

You’re tired of this game .

Game of Life or death.

But I won’t die.

Im going to cut the tie that’s

snug all over my body,

So that I can get up and fly.

With every soar, my story I

will pour.

A little here.

A little there, because Shaquana will

NOT shut up or give up.

The fight is mine.

And I’m sure to win it in due time. 😊
