i used to be a child named sophie.
i loved my name,
it made me feel like a butterfly.
i was happy, without cares
and then i started developing
and my stepfather noticed.
i’m sixteen now.
they still call me sophie
but the name doesn’t fit me anymore.
i try to hide myself behind clothes that are too big for me,
but he still sees me.
i spend lots of time in my room,
but he still finds me.
should i talk to my mother?
he’s told me not to.
he’s said that i shouldn’t make her choose between us.
she loves him.
i’m afraid to speak—
if it’s a choice between him and me
i’m afraid he’ll win.
there’s only one place where i feel free
in my dreams.
In my dreams, I come alive
Because I’m with you.
With you I am once again Sophie,
I fly with you in Heaven, Daddy,
And I know you would never hurt me
Like he does.
but then i wake up
and he’s here
and you’re not.
you told me about god, Daddy.
you told me he loves me.
could you please tell him to come to this awful place
and free me?
i want to be sophie again
