Battle Cry

***A battle cry for all of us — for survivors of abuse, rape, harassment, violence and more; for LGBTQ family and friends; for all the victims of racism and victims of fear and ignorance. Rise. Stand. March. Scream. Vote.

 

 

Can you hear me?

I’m screaming

Can you hear me?

I cried for all these years

Can you hear me?

You never saw my tears

Can you hear me?

I heard you laugh at my fears

Can you hear me?

Your voice covered mine

Can you hear me?

Pushing me, beating me into line

Can you hear me?

Listen, you’re running out of time

Can you hear me?

I’m shifting gears

Can you hear me?

I’ve run out of fear

Can you hear me?
