It Is OK To Tell

We are a river wide,
Amongst the multitudes we hide
We wear the mask of life,
Trying hard to manage inner strife.

Predators speckle our maps, the fraction that they show
Yet the victims’ marks would coat the ground like snow
Don’t hide their dirty lies
You’ll let the monsters multiply

Where was help when we were young?
Seems too late, the damage done.
Pretending nothing’s wrong, blend into society,
We try to be so strong, hiding our hell, reality.

Predators speckle our maps, the fraction that they show
Yet the victims’ marks would cover the ground like snow
Don’t hide their dirty lies
You’ll let the monsters multiply

Doesn’t matter – stranger, friend or family
Protect the children, Can’t You SEE?
Let the truth be known – no more eternal scars
Let the Lord’s mercy be shown, even if its behind bars
