Leave Someday

Published March 17, 2013 by ashleyhannelore

Can’t comprehend
Can see it in her eyes
Pain in her heart
As her whole body cries
She doesn’t know herself
What she has become
Running round in circles
As she learns the rules of thumb

She walks along the street
In the same old blue dress
With her head tilted down
She’s a pretty little mess
She’s got bruises on her arms
And scars on her wrists
She walks all alone
Her hands together in fists
Her family shows no care
They just don’t understand
When she tries to explain
They just lift up a had
She tries to break free
But she can’t find a way
She’s figuring it out
So she can leave someday

He’s bleeding out his pain
His only way to cope
Killing him within
As he loses all hope
He doesn’t know himself
What he has become
Running round in cirlces
As he learns the rules of thumb

He walks along the street
In the same old black suit
His head facing down
He’s a victim of bruit
He’s got bruises on his arms
And scars on his wrists
He walks all alone
His hands together in fists
His dad shows no care
He just doesn’t understand
When the boy tries to explain
His dad lifts up a hand
He tries to break free
But he can’t find a way
He’s figuring it out
So he can leave someday

They didn’t know themselves
What they had become
Ran around in circles
As they learned the rules of thumb

They walk along the street
In the same old torn clothes
Their heads facing forwards
Now everyone knows
Bruises healing
Scars will not be missed
They walk ahead together
They finally exist
Their parents never cared
They just didn’t understand
The kids tried to explain
And just lifted up their hands
They are breaking free
They have found a way
They figured it out
And are leaving today
