Hey lovelies 💕,
Before I begin with this short blog post I would like to say that I have a giveway going on my Instagram. You just have to follow me there, like my picture and comment why you want to win. You also need to be Europe based. I just wanted to give something back. I’m so thankful for all your support and love I have on my blog and on that Instagram account. I love you all so much 😍😍😍.
Before I post some Christmas blog posts I wanted to post this blog post. I just needed to share this here. I also shared it on my Instagram: Poetry video. This is my Youtube account which I never use but I just felt the urge to share it there too. My video on my main account of Instagram already had more than 1500 views and more than 100 likes which is just so much wow. I have never made a video reading one of my poems before but tonight is the night that I’m going to do it. I wrote it in Spanish because it’s about a Spanish girl but I will also translate it in English down below. I just had to write about what happened. This poem is for all women who are suffering from violence against women in every form possible. You are not alone. Together we are stronger 💪. They will not silence us.
Laura is a Spanish girl who was only 26 years old when she got missed a few days ago in Huelva in Andalucia. That’s in the south of Spain. She was a teacher in that village. She was missing and never came back alive 💔😢. They found her body on Monday half naked. I have to say that there’s one mistake in my poem which is that she was running. Right now they are investigating how she died. I saw the Spanish news and they said one man which was a neighbor from her killed her. He already killed a woman a few years ago and was in prison. I really don’t know why they let this crazy man free.
He locked her into his car and wanted to rape her but she resisted. Then he hit her with something on her head. She died a few days later. We still don’t know where the body was the days she was missing. It’s just a horrible story 😢. Again, another victim of violence against women. With all my frustration and pain I’m feeling right now I just needed to express my emotions in this poem. You can read my English translation of this poem down below:
We all are Laura
She was called Laura
She only had 26 years
A year less than I’m
She was a teacher
She went running and never came back
She got murdered
We all are Laura
We don’t want to be afraid when we are walking alone at night
We don’t want to be afraid because we are a woman
We don’t want to have our keys in our hands to enter fast our home
We don’t that men see us as an object
We don’t want to live in a patriarchal world
We don’t want that the world judge women when they are getting raped
We want to be free, protected by society and treated with respect
Free, healthy and safe is what we want to be
Not one more!
We are all Laura ❤
Laura somos todas
Se llamaba Laura
Tenía tan sólo 26 años
Un año menos que yo
Salió a correr y no volvió nunca más
Laura somos todas
No queremos tener miedo por la noche cuándo andamos solas
No queremos tener miedo por ser una mujer
No queremos tener las llaves en la mano para entrar pronto a casa
No queremos que los hombres nos vean como un objeto
No queremos vivir en este mundo patriarcado
No queremos que el mundo nos juzgue a las mujeres cuándo somos violadas
Queremos ser libres, protegidas por la sociedad y tratadas con respeto
Libres, sanas y salvas eso es lo que queremos
Ni una más!
Todos somos Laura ❤️
I know almost none of my followers can speak Spanish but the words sounded better in Spanish. I wanted to share both the original Spanish version and also the English translation. Maybe, in the future I will also make a video of the English version.
Thank you all for watching my video and for reading this poem. Did you like this poem? What are you thoughts of the topic of violence against women? Are you also a feminist? I’m a feminist by heart and will forever continue to spread awareness about this topic. Together we can make a change. They will not silence us 💪💜.
Much love 💕,
