You broke into my home

You broke into my home
You beat me
You terrorised me
You stole my dignity

(Live sullied
Live in shame
Live silenced
Live in secrecy)

I cannot forget but
I’ll learn to be free and when
I see you in handcuffs
I’ll take the dignity

Live sorry
Live shamed
Live in silence
Live solitary

(Based on the words of Niamh Cosgrave in an interview with Seán O'Rourke on RTÉ Radio 1.)
