‘Saying Society’
‘Saying Society’
What have we said her into?
We mouthed her
Mouthed her back to her nightmare

She became our plague
She became our shame
She became our dent
She became our ordeal
We pushed her
Pushed her back

She pleaded for our understanding
She pleaded for our help
Our holier-than-thou attitude didn’t let us think
Our family ego didn’t let us help
We pushed her

“Go, go, go back
It’s your home
Don’t let another take
What you have worked for”
We told her we were against the act
We told her we were with her this time

He came begging
He came pleading
He looked repentant
Like he always has after his wicked act
We joined in assuring her it won’t happen again
We pushed her

Who will tell the story of what happened
The head is down
The mouth is shut
Who will tell us what happened

Why cry
Why cry
We pushed her
She never wanted to go back
But we didn’t let her be
The name and ego we tried to protect is now everywhere
Everywhere for the very wrong reasons

Will she survive this?

Saying society
Oh Saying Society
Who is our next target?
When will we look beyond us?
And deal with the issue

Let these women be
Let them live
Help them live
Stop the stigmatization

Say No to all form of Domestic Violence
Say it and sand by it

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
