Something was Stolen from me


Rockport, Maine

This song is part of the Songs of #MeToo project.


Grandpa came to visit us
For two weeks I didn’t talk
I was three, I shut down
Mom told me the tale

Something was stolen from me
Something happened to me
I feel like I’m chained
I want to be free

I see you notice me
but I shut down
It takes away
What could’ve been

I want to get out
Of what I am
You don’t
Have a clue

Something was stolen from me…

A year ago to the day
I said I was abused.
I’m not afraid
I’ll say it out loud
