A tough sharing for sure, though one I wanted to open for anyone who felt to share. Anonymous or assumed names most welcome.
I wrote the song Lay Down inspired by the poet Maya Angelou – here’s Maya talking about rape…and secondly about how love liberates
Side by side in these videos I see the courage of a woman who never gave up on love and what she believes and I believe is in us all, some show it some sadly can’t touch it. Lay Down was an effort to hold the redemptive, strong and fiercely compassionate spirit of Maya.
Domestic violence is very real – stats from 2019 in the UK show an increase on 24% to 2.4 million people experiencing domestic abuse – and that is those who report it, as the report suggests.
I had a sharing sent to me from a friend and here another friend agreed to read it out:
