on a mountain so high
it touches the sky

by the edge i stand
reaching for his hand

waiting for the day that he will finally take me away,
the brusies are gettting harder to hide

people are starting to ask questions
and its harder to make the lies

every night it gets worse
he comes home drunk

i hide and pray
that he wont hurt me today

he yells and screams
blames me for all of his loses,

i cry and say im sorry daddy,
i dont mean to be a bother

he reaches for me and throws me against the wall,
i fall down and dont budge

i lie there lifeless and slightly breathing,
i cant hold on any longer

jesus i pray once more
please take me away from this pain

i love my daddy but i cant hold on

on a mountain so high
it touches the sky

by the edge i stand
reaching for his hand

waiting for the day that he will finally take me away,
today i get my wings and fly away

The author's comments:
child abuse is wrong and should be stopped, this is one subject i feel strong about. i have heard way to many stories about it and that way to many kids die from it especially young kinds who have done no wrong.
