Because it happens too often
To way too many people.
Everyone knows someone
Who has been through this,
Even if they haven’t told you yet.
If you can,
To prevent this happening to others.
We take it for granted,
That men will touch us,
Or say that inappropriate comment,
Now is the time to say no,
And have them really hear it
This is not normal
And it’s not okay.
Get a hold of yourself,
To the men who act like this is their right,
You don’t own me.
Now is the time to revolt,
Ladies, gents and allies alike,
Let’s stop this.
Much more than a simple hashtag,
It is giving a voice to people everywhere,
Who have suffered in silence for too long.
