You are more than what you present
You are violent and rude but are you content?
There is something more to you
If only I knew
I question the words that come out
What lead to the sadness and what is it about?
How can one help you recognize
What it looks like from my eyes
How come you are unable to see?
The pain you afflicted on me
Yet I forgive you every time
Because you have to live with the crime
Beaten and abused
You left me physically bruised
Finally the scales fall
And I can see it all
Why am I here with this man?
Who laid a hand on me as I ran?
Escaping the violence of this house
Where I was told to be quiet as a mouse
You were sent away too
Because finally the world knew
The man who once loved me
Had kept me from being free
Under the influence of his words
I fell short of flying like the birds
But, I am not bitter towards you
I care, its true
Completely free from my past
I learned and asked
Now I can tell others like me
Its’ going to be okay, they will see
There’s more to them then that man
And their new life has only began
