Little child in the corner you cry
Dreading when father comes home
Mother can’t help you, you’re living a lie
You know you’ll be all alone
He will shout, He will hurt, He will yell
He will punch you til you bleed
Yet you are denied by all you tell
How can no one notice such horrible deeds?
10 years have gone quickly past
Yet these memories have failed to leave
These scars are always going to last
Happiness is all you want to achieve
Red ink write on your canvas skin so pale
You consider giving up it all.
Each line you write leaving a bloody trail
Your knife is what you use to draw
Sometimes all you can do is scream
Let it all out, let someone know
Every horrid thought and dream
Sometimes you wish you could stop this show
One day someone will understand
One day you will speak your mind
Tell them all that happened at your father’s hand
Then you will be able to leave the memories behind.
