Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine.


Face covered with dirt and sweat

Blood and tears make up your complexion.

Fighting this war with fear of losing

If you don’t try you’ll keep bruising.

Every step you take is a shot fired

Every step you take risks your life.

The wounds cut deep in your skin

Making you take that extra sip of gin.

Treading along as quietly as you can

You’re walking on eggshells all the time.

You’ve been stricken once more

You cry as you fall to the floor.

Frustrated on what to do next

Because you don’t know how to survive.

You were once on the same side

But your feelings for each other died.

You’ve let this war go on for too long

You can’t take the pain anymore.

Next time he tries to hit you

Pick up your courage and bid him adieu. 

And if he tries to stop you,

Just remember you have more power over him.

You do whatever necessary

To be the fear he’ll later carry.
