Yells lower to whispers,

The whispers fade away,

The baby no longer cries,

It's silent night and day.


Silent screams are heard,

The silence has been broken,

Hear the victims cry out,

Let them tell you what was stolen.


The abusers make the victim,

The victim falls from the abuse,

The abuser keeps abusing,

Hoping the victim gives up soon.


Let the silence be heard,

Let it be deafening,

So the world will know,

Of everybody's suffering.


So if you have fallen victim,

And haven't got up since,

Tell someone you can trust,

And break the deafening silence.
