Break Free

Daddy starts yelling
And throws stuff around
Mommy sits quietly,
Not making a sound

Sissy's on her bed
Laying there crying
Deep down inside
All of them are dying

In a dark corner,
Behind the couch
I sit there watching
Filled up with doubt

I wonder what will happen
If they fall apart
Will it go back like it was
Hate filling our hearts?

Each passing day
Worse than before
Our home over-run
Be a weaponless war

The screaming gets louder
I cover my ears
Close my eyes and pray
That it will all disappear

When everything's quiet
No one saying a word
A silence unbroken
The air undisturbed

Then it starts all again
The world tumbling down
I listen for peace
But don't hear a sound

Day after day
I wait patiently
FOr that one special time
When we all can break free

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to. That's just how things typically are here. I think I have one or two more about the same thing just different words
