Rachel’s poem is part of a series of competition winners and runners up, inspired by the theme for HMD 2012, Speak Up, Speak Out

A silent scream lost in time

A shadow play in the dark

So many people lost now

Who can speak up for them

Shall I whisper in your ear

Can I shout in the street

Stand up and be counted

Who can speak out for them

Burial pits for broken lives

Never again can this happen

Broken up no more dreams

I tell you now: never again!
