Today I’m crying…
Today I will be crying for you Hannah
For the hurt that was done, for the pain that was caused,
I cry for the sudden end of your youthful smile, your radiant sunshine face.
Today I will be crying for you Franziska Blöchliger
For your purity stolen so viciously, for the little girl cries you must’ve cried.
I cry for the inhumane hurt you had to endure.
Today I will be crying for you Reeva
For the fear you felt deep down, for the unexpected end to your beautiful hopes and dreams.
Today I cry for you Anene
For being naïve in your thinking, for trusting the one you called friend
I cry for you were ripped away callously
Today I cry for you Carmen
For the children you left behind, for the anxiety you lived with for so long
I cry because you could never leave until you were gone
Today I cry for you Anni
For your innocent and kind face, for you believed in vows and in love
I cry because you truly believed
Today I cry for you Jayde
For your gentle heart that trusted the enemy, for being oblivious about the trap being set
I cry for the love you wasted on a cruel cruel heart
Today I cry for you Susan
For no one knew of the invisible scars laid across your heart
I cry because you tried so hard not to part
Today I cry for you Karabo
I cry because you were strong but not strong enough
Today I cry for all the women whose lives was taken by the hands of the deceivers of their hearts, the destroyers of their futures and the demolisher of their hopes.
