No peace

I have no peace while you walk free

No resolution – nor retribution – for what you took from me

You write you are sorry for what you failed to do

Easy words disguise your lack of humanity, of human kindness

For those in your charge, so vulnerable and frightened

You have been set free, retrained, deemed fit to work

Lucky you

Where is the justice that allows this to happen?

Where is the justice when there is no law

To punish you for what you failed to do?

Where is the justice that allows you to walk freely

Where is my justice for what you took from me?

I have no peace while you walk free

the day i lost me

the day i lost me,

it’s not hard to guess

the day i lost me

is when they came for you

the day i lost me

i was too slow to see

the day i lost me

i was too scared to leave

the day i lost me

did i let you down

the day i lost me

you begged me to be free

but the day they lost me

is the day they hurt you

the day they lost me

is the day you ceased to be
