Please stop the violence

A poem by Sharon Roebourne

Please stop the violence
I sit in silence
I made a stand
I said ‘No more’
But the scars are still very raw
As I say to my kids
Tears will dry
My love for you 
Will never die
As I hold 
My head held high
It’s a long road
But I let go of a very big load
I fought and I fought
Finally I got some support
From people far to people near
They were all there what I had to hear
I am strong 
I didn't do anything wrong
I am here
Well and alive
I walk this world
For I know how to survive
