Just Don't Expect Me To Be Pleased

I’ll always be here
Just don’t expect me to be pleased
If you live with someone who hits you.

I’ll kick up a fuss
So don’t expect me to keep quiet
I won’t.

I’ll always care
But I do feel cross 
You chose to live with someone like that.

You did nothing for months
A big pretence
You said “ it’s  fine.” It wasn’t.

The kids were scared
You smiled
Don’t think I couldn’t see you were scared too.

You read in the news
“He did this, he did that.”
“Why didn’t her family help “we all asked.

So I did
I don’t care if you are annoyed
He’s gone. You are safe.

I’ll always be here
Just don’t expect me to be pleased
Not yet, it takes time.
