Kathleen Healy -Speaking Out
Speaking Out 2.58

I shake my head and look away
You don’t hear a single word I say
No means no you can’t have it your way
No is not some little game I play
Years of secrets, shame, and doubt
I’m speaking out
I am not a piece of property
To be mistreated so recklessly
Keep your filthy hands off of me
Let me walk away, let me be

Years of secrets, shame, and doubt
I’m speaking out
Countless women from countless lives
Girlfriends, daughters, sisters, and wives
Thought that silence was our only choice
Now together, we’re finding a voice

No more secrets, shame, and doubt
We’re speaking out
Speaking out
Speaking out
