Secrets and Lies by Amanda Knowles

We know you are out there hidden in the ranks

Bestowed with fancy titles that camouflage disgrace

You are fugitives from candour concealed by collusion

Indifferent to the stain of sickening malice


But what about the victims laced in the stench of your guilt

Serving as an indelible reminder of crimes evaded

Denied their right to justice by high ranking influence

Determined to erase the scar of  unforgivable abuse

But know this… behind every survivor is a story to be remembered 

Lest we forget it is our duty to protect
