Abbey wrote this whilst watching the programme Murdered for being different on tv about the horrific attack on Sophie Lancaster and Robert Maltby in August 2007.

Have no dread with dreads

This girl,
This is a girl of difference,
This is a girl with dreadlocks and piercings,
This is a girl with the power to be herself and no one else,

This boy,
This is a boy of difference,
This is a boy with ripped black jeans and dark varnish garnishing his nails,
This is a boy with the power to be himself and no one else,

These are boys,
These are the boys that don’t understand different,
These are the boys with Nike and Adidas,
These are the boys with the trainers that caused the footprints on his and her young bodies,

That is a boy,
That is a boy who is different,
That is a boy who was in love,
That is a boy with the strength to stay strong over now physical and mental scars,
That is a boy who was hurt for being him

That was a girl,
That was a girl with dreadlocks and piercings,
That was a girl with the power to be herself and no one else,
That is the girl that was murdered for being her
