I was raped when I was 16.
For years I never talked about it. Inspired by brave women who have recently publicly shared

their stories, I decided to share mine as well.

People often ask - why are these women coming out now, so many years later?
For me, the voices of this community have helped alleviate feelings of isolation and have

given me tremendous strength.

Speaking openly is my way of saying I am done feeling like a victim.

I wrote SPEAK about standing up for myself. Today I dedicate this song to all who have been

abused and hurt, and have felt ashamed and alone. You are not alone. We have strength in

numbers, and our voice is our power.

Lyrics

SPEAK
(music & lyrics by Marina V & Nick Baker)

I want to scream at people
who are mean to me
But I’m too nice, too nice
I’m a nice girl

I’m the quiet type
Never argue, never fight
Always agree, afraid
Afraid of controversy
Afraid to hurt the feelings of people who don’t care
Don’t care about me
But now I’ve had enough

I will speak up
I will speak out
And I will speak my mind
Don’t care if they freak out
I will speak out
And I will speak my mind

Not gonna worry what they think and I’m not sorry
Got my voice and I will be heard
I’m done with compromise
Don’t ask me to be nice
Too nice, too nice, cause I’m a nice girl
Cause now I’ve had enough

I will speak up
I will speak out
And I will speak my mind
Don’t care if they freak out
I will speak out
And I will speak my mind

And I will never apologize
Never apologize for being myself
Cause I’ve had enough

I will speak up
I will speak out
And I will speak my mind
Don’t care if they freak out
I am gonna speak out
And I will speak my mind
I will speak up, speak out, and I will speak my mind
I will speak up, speak out
And I will speak my mind
