I try

February 21, 2011

i close my eyes and try to forget
to live my life with no regret
to laugh and love and smile a lot
so i try to lie and say i forgot
but deep down behind every bruise
i just wish i could stop all this abuse
i fake a smile i fake a laugh
i wish i didn't have to feel his wrath
so i try to forget his screaming face and how he said its my fault and I'm such a disgrace
so i try to forget my pain and sorrow
that is if i live to see tomorrow
now all i can do is hope and pray that i will be free someday
