why did i stay there and take it all
why did i not run why did i not call
what is wrong with me that I didnt tell
my siblings all did and are now doing well
please tell me the answer if you should know
why i was afraid to run or to go
why did i not see like the other had seen
what made me so obedient to a mother so mean?
is there chance that i may once again fall
Victim to an abuser and be unable to call
it frightens me to think that i am so slow
to let others know my pains, my wounds to show.
