No One Believed Her

Silent for so long
She had tried
No one listened
The hurting
The scars
She sounded out
Her cries misheard
No scars, so why bother
Misled by the promonence
He is such a leader
A good man of our community
Maybe she said or did, but not him
Scars are appearing daily now
He has taken to publicly abusing
Yes, the truth has come out
But is it him or her
Who is to blame
Who is the victim
Both victims and
Both survivors
Both need our help
Love and support
For we turned our eye
When it was just begun
Now we all need
The moral support
And plenty of time
Never again
Never again
