Never Again

That fear which creeps on the back of your neck
Slide to the side to protect those close
Making itself known at inopportune times
Keeping you still, you can not move
Never again, never again
Never again, never again

Judgment coming from the left and right
False words, they fade with each breath
Stories of others, but none from you
Keep it to yourself, you don’t know
Shedding the care bodies push near you
Looking for a reaction and a rise Towering over I stand, mouthing ‘fuck you too’

Never again, never again
Never again, never again
It’s been lived thru

Never again
It’s all done
Never again
It’s the past
Never again
