The Line – Jina Wallwork
I will not be silenced. My expression will not be contained within a tomb. Give my integrity the space to breathe, so my speech can rise higher than a whisper. I cannot be asked to alter my words because I’m revealing my personal truth. You cannot ask me to cease because this is who I am. Every cell within my body will resist the silence, joining the front line, they will fight. Peaceful but resolute they will form a line that you cannot cross, because everyone must have the freedom to speak.
