The stronger our love is

The more we’re seen

The stronger we are


A long time ago our strength was taken away from us

Our lives were tormented

We were called backwards and slow

Fed food not fit to eat

Forced to do things we were not ready for


- I was locked in the broom cupboard

No windows

No air

Stifled -

The stronger our love is

The more we’re seen

The stronger we are


- I was sent away to boarding school

When I was 8 years old

I had a little doll

Her name was Sarah

One day the headmistress cut the doll into little pieces

and broke my friendship with the doll

I used to carry her in my pocket

I used to talk to her when things went wrong -


The stronger our love is

The more we’re seen

The stronger we are


We needed to get away from the bad things

Towards something good:


Is it wrong if we speak and say things?

Why have Social Services lied for so long?

Do we not deserve to eat well?


Can we have your support please?


The stronger our love is

The more we’re seen

The stronger we are


When we are not ready we say no

We value choice, strength, change

and want to be listened to


Things have been wrong

and we want them to be right-


Life could be a lot better

we want to show our power

and not be shy to carry on doing

what we should be doing.


The stronger our love is

The more we’re seen

The stronger we are


The stronger we are

The more we’re seen

The stronger our love is.
