I came home from school
excited about my day.
My smile disappears
as I see you in the doorway.
your once light skin
now black and blue.
Oh, mommy, what happened to you?
I go into my room
and put my backpack down.
Then daddy comes in
wearing a frown.
I didn't do anything wrong
why are you yelling at me?
Oh how I love you
that's why I don't flee.
i don't understand why
you do the things you do
but every time you hit mommy
your hurting me too.
After your done
releasing your frustration
you leave mommy on the floor
crying in desperation.
With me tucked in a corner
My hands over my ears
trying to block out
what I've been hearing for years.
For the next few years
mommy has to stay inside
but I'm older now
and i no longer want to hide.
But it is inevitable
I'm afraid of what people might do
if they knew the truth.
Daddy, I don't want to lose you.
But why do i feel
like it's too late
like I've already lost
the battle with fate.
I love you Daddy
but I've had enough
Even though it's hard for me
i have to be though.
So pack your bags
And leave your keys
i can't let you hurt us anymore
So just leave us, please.
