If She Suffers In Silence


 


They ignore her battered face


refuse to see the violence


their world will still feel safe


if she suffers in silence


 


They donít look her in the eye


donít want to hear her cry


She isnít safe at home


and canít get out alone


 


She tried to hold her head high


til everyone passed her by


Now she turns in shame


feels her spirit drain


 


Sheís too weak for decisions


too depressed for new visions


needs a  helping hand


one person who understands


 


But people wonít be involved


Her problem is too big to solve


One smile might give her faith


but people turn away


 


Their world will still feel safe


if she suffers in silence

A live voice to prod the indifference - I listen from the lines of
"If She Suffers In Silence", - which sings its message in wise harmony with the song of Justice.

Sandy, I'd like to see this put to music. It's too sad and too true, been there, done that.
