YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS ANYMORE

By
I saw you
I looked into your eyes
Then I looked at your body
You don't have to live like this anymore

I saw the bruises, scratches, and marks
I saw the tears, pain, and sorrow
And all the hurt pouring out of your heart
You don't have to live like this anymore

You don't deserve this
You never did
Your smiles don't hide it
They never will
You don't have to live like this anymore

You won't talk
You won't ear
You hide away
From all the strife
You don't have to livelike this anymore

I see the damage
I see the frustration
And yet, he still keeps on torturing
You don't have to live like this anymore

I watched you scream
I watched you fall
I know you fight
You don't deserve to bleed each night
You don't have to live like this anymore

You should leave
And he should die
You don't deserve
To live a lie
You don't have to live like this anymore

You're not okay
I don't like seeing you panic
Each time he walks through the dor
You don't have to live like this anymore

You shouldn't be scared anymore
You can rise above tihs
You are beautiful
You are my role model
You don't have to live like this anymore

I look up to you
I see an elegant queen
Someone with beauty, joy, and love
You shouldn't live like this

Carol, you don't have to live like this anymore.
