home sweet home


Home was sweet once but now mommy and daddy fight.

Daddy hurts me!

Quiet he’s coming; it’s time for daddy’s special time alone.
Mommy hates me, she blame me for everything.

I wish on a star to be out of this place, away from the pain.

I keep my head up and keep going.

I let go of the lighter when no one’s home.

No don’t play with mommy’s toy

but it was too late.

Home sweet home is a myth a lie from

a storybook.

Don't let my story end 

I cry for help till the beating is done.

why me ?
