She'll Rise

Prayed to God and yes she was wishing Wishing that this nightmare would end And that she'd somehow wake up in her bed. But that wasn't the case this nightmare was real Because every raping blow she would feel Her muffled screams from his hand on her face She wished she had packed up some mace By the time she wanted to break free it was over He slapped her in the face and told her don't tell a soul But who would she tell her heart just grew cold Alone on the floor she cried like she had no soul And she wondered why in the world nobody had cared They just passed by her laughed or stared Now she doesn't trust a soul with her situations She just keeps them to herself no negotiation She tries to talk about it but no one'll really listen She tries to show it in her face but all the signs they're missing she just keeps to herself she finds it easier If she told a soul it's not like they'd believe her Wrapped up in a blanket of hurt is how she lives her life Lays her head to bed and cries every night She tries to find some inner strength or inner might She can't do it Alone she needs someone to fight Fight the battles and the demons that posses her daily Or give her some encouragement to help her go on But for now she'll just wear a big smile Thats just how she lives her life this is her life story One day she'll rise from this and have her glory
