The Battle

Everyday is another battle
Another fight
Another war

Each day I struggle to stay alive
To stay free
To stay untouched

Everyday he tries to touch me
Tries to kiss me
Tries to seduce me

Each time I scream for freedom
Scream for him to let go
Scream to just get away

Every year he produces another baby
Produces another pain
Produces another lost in my life

Every moment I see him standing
I see him watching
I see him laughing

Everyday I try to get away
Try to end my life
Try to get free

But I know deep inside that no matter what
He’ll be there watching
Be there waiting
Be there preparing

I can’t win a war that was never mines to win
Never to accomplish
For the man that I’m fighting
Is my father.
