Sons daughters and parents

Sons, daughters and parents


She’s making lunch the kitchen
Get the kids ready for school
She goes to the grocery
Comes home and clean the pool

She does all the laundry
Fold and pack in the draw
She makes dinner in the oven
Got Soccer practice at four

He gets home at six
Turns on the TV and grabs a beer
Get angry when he sees s
 That She is not there

Since he came back from Iraq
He was never the same
They send him in the fire
 But only she feels the flame

And when she gets home 
He wants to starts a fight
She put the kids to bed
And kiss them goodnight

Then he hits her so hard
 When she comes down stairs
She fell down the to floor 
Her eyes fill with tears

And she cries in silence
As her mouth bled
She thinks of the children 
Sound asleep in bed

Then he attacks her
She’s afraid for her life
They struggle in the kitchen
And he fell on a knife

And now she is behind bars
Until the case is done
While in the white house
New war plans has began

The children are with her parents
A happy family life taken away
As the evils of war continues
To call our sons and daughters today

Let’s make our voices have an effect
Calling for all wars to end 
And lets this be a world where no one
 Lost a son, daughter or parents again
