I want to feel safe and warm
In a mother's comforting arms
Or in a father's big bear hug
With a family to care and love

I want all the fighting to stop
The screams are only words
But smash like fists and blades
Threatening to tear me to pieces

I want everything to go away
Voices rise and fall like waves
In the harsh and deadly sea
That steals away my breath

I want to scream and yell
But these soothing wails will
Never be enough to drown
The sharp voices from the room

I want to be my own self
To create a life to survive in
To be an idenity seperated
From my pain, from my past
