#SpokenWord Poetry presented on 6th September, 2017 at the Symposium On Sexual Violence and Launch of SALVUS Platform.
So let me speak to you about Silence.
Yes, good old Silence.
You see, they say Silence is Golden
But the number of girls out there with their souls broken
Is proof that Silence is not always a virtue.
Yes, Silence is not golden
As a matter of fact, silence can be costly,
And even, more so, deadly.
