Break The Cycle

We are the generation speaking up
We are the generation speaking out
Can you hear us loud and clear?

We will not remain silent
We will not remain complicit
We will not react and attack to retaliate
We will respond to you with love and compassion

No longer will we continue
The cycle of abuse and oppression
No longer will we continue
The cycle of denial and suppression

It is time to transcend historical trauma
It is time to change ourselves and the world
It is time to advocate for ourselves and others
It is time to educate and learn from each other
It is time to heal from our childhood wounds and upbringing; our social conditioning
It is time to recover towards a better life and a brighter future

And it starts with me
And it starts with you
And it starts with us

This is not personal, I promise you
This is cumulative, collective and generational
This is not about pointing fingers
Or using tactics such as blaming and shaming
This is about the process of reclaiming
Our power that was lost and stolen
This is about finding and using our voices
To come together and share our stories
Of shared pain and experiences
That make us only human
And connect us with one another
Maybe then we will come to realize
The truth of who we really are

And it starts with us
And it starts with you
And it starts with me

It is time to recover towards a better life and a brighter future
It is time to heal from our childhood wounds and upbringing; our social conditioning
It is time to educate and learn from each other
It is time to advocate for ourselves and others
It is time to change ourselves and the world
It is time to transcend historical trauma

The cycle of denial and suppression
No longer will we continue
The cycle of abuse and oppression
No longer will we continue

We will respond to you with love and compassion
We will not react and attack to retaliate
We will not remain complicit
We will not remain silent

Can you hear us loud and clear?
We are the generation speaking out
We are the generation speaking up
