Stories of Hope & Survival: Day 13 (This Town)

This Town

I’m just trying to get by in this town,
I think I’m going to die in this town,
I think people want to know me,
But they just want to own me.

I won’t be used like that,
I don’t care if I break my back,
When they try to pull me down,
I’ll push back till something snaps,
I’ll be standing tall in the midst of it all.

Without a scowl or a frown,
I refuse to be taken down,
But the day will come,
The devil I will meet,
I’ll get knocked down right here on my street,
As all that I know is changed in a beat,

Eventually braking point will be reached,
A time will come for me to weep,
My body will tremble as my mind grows weak,
But I shall never let my soul be breached.

Bex, 2014

This #StDwynwensDay we celebrate the strength of all women in Wales facing violence who still rise to support others and change lives. Celebrate the patron saint of caring relationships by sending our eCard at ow.ly/fA1x50HBP2C and supporting our movement for change. 💜 pic.twitter.com/q3RLI5HcsZ
