This is a dedication in the book An Untold Story, featuring the life stories of women working in prostitution in Hull, using their own words and images.
This is the blank page poetry,
This is the hidden pen.
The silent voices, hushed up screams,
Unheard whispers; called out names.
And uncared for.
This is the truth as it stands.
These are the voices of our friends who got lost on the way.
These are the shadows of the innocent and lonely,
Who never made it home.
These are the tears and the endless echoes of the cries for help
That no one ever answered.
Bless them all and send them on their way.
This is our dedication to The Women Who Have Died.
