Stop it

the words have been spoken

“Stop it”


no longer silent


standing on solid ground


we too can say

stop it


inspired and with authority

protecting the vulnerable

for anyone

doing or voicing that which violates a country’s constitutional laws

transgressing another’s human rights


in hearing someone say

stop it

we join them

unifying our voices


let’s make it an anthem

let it be the movement


no need to be alone trying to protect oneself

no need to stand by and not be sure how to help

support a community

heal the world

record it

post it

stop it
