There’s so much pain inside of me,
Don’t know if I’ll ever be the same.
I’ve seen my Daddy hurt my Mommy,
Too many times now to explain.
Mommy tries to hide her bruises,
She never plays with me, she’s too sad.
Jesus, help my Mommy smile again,
And help my Daddy not to be so mad.
Last night I tried to make him stop it,
I begged him not to hurt her anymore.
He just screamed and pushed me down,
Said he had to settle one more score.
Then Daddy locked me in my bedroom,
But I could still hear Mommy’s cries.
As time after time I heard him hit her,
Shouting; “He was sick of all her lies!”
Then all I heard was the clock ticking,
And the door’s still locked up tight.
I’m beating and I’m pounding,
Trying to open it with all my might.
Then came the loud sirens wailing,
A policeman beat down the door.
He picked me up and tried to hide my face
From my Mommy lying dead on the floor.
The policeman said Daddy ran away,
But said, he couldn’t hide for long!
He asked me “What’s your name, little girl?”
I couldn’t talk, my tongue felt gone.
They took me to a big hospital,
It was cold with very bright lights.
I finally fell asleep with a teddy bear,
And an angel stayed with me all night.
The Doctors say I was traumatized,
I don’t know what that means.
I just know that my heart’s all locked up inside,
Like that door between me, and my Mommy’s screams……
