When I'm lost, scared, battered and broken,
When my heart and emotions are left wide open,
Love is reaching out to help me stand,
And all a broken little girl like me has to do,
Is grab His hand <3


A family of three in three different rooms.
Who was to know they'd be divided so soon?
Torn apart by the hidden secrets of their lives.
The sting of their words pierces like knives.
You can feel the tension bouncing off the walls,
The emptiness that's creeping into the halls.
Its like a dark cloud has positioned itself directly over them.
The light is being forced out...dimmer...dimmer...and then!
He snaps! He explodes! He's in a rage!
When will it stop?
This crazy rampage?!
She's sobbing quietly, but nobody sees.
She's all alone in her family of three.


The author's comments:
A lot of people come from broken families with dark backgrounds. Everything seems fine and dandy on the outside, but once home, the masks come off and true colors shine through. Know that you're not alone in this battle.
