Longing For Freedom

Split lip
Bleeding nose
Broken home
And nobody knows

Loud yells
Angry screams
But at school
Her smile still gleams

Hidden thoughts
Forbidden to share
And nobody knows
So nobody cares

BUt school is safe
Home-a battle ground
But unlike real war
She can't hide behind mounds

She wants to scream
Let the whole world know
Roll up her sleeves
So the bruises will show

Fed up
Sick of his actions
His hitting an punching
Sickening addictions

She sits-waiting
The next time he grabs her
She'll say "self defense"
Police with say "murder"

But she's not a killer
Forensics will prove
She get off the hook
Then to a new home she'll move

But he will be gone
And she will be free
To become what she wants
to be what she needs to be
