“HIS FOOTSTEPS”

His footsteps I heard coming

Just like every other night

Heard my mother screaming

Knew this wasn’t right

The words my father said

Were so ruthless and cruel

Each time she got hit

I sat not knowing what to do

I’d free her from the pain

My eyes wouldn’t let me cry

His anger unexplained

Tears dropped my mothers eyes

Each beating she took

Wished it would be the last

I forever remember that look

Praying time would move on fast

Constant back and forth yelling

Wish at times I wasn’t alive

Just kept thinking to myself

Without mom how would I survive

Her thrown against the wall

Pounced to the ground

My heart would take a fall

When I would hear that sound

His heart was so cold

Anger was even in his touch

Couldn’t understand how father

Would hate mother so much

Some how we made it through

Moved past to a different time

The damage already done

Will never leave my mind

Life forever changed

I’m the opposite of my tree

I’ll be forever be the guardian

Of my loved ones around me
