When will the fighting stop

It goes on day in and day out

Its nonstop

And sometimes I just want to shout

But I know I can't

I am brave

But a coward

To scared to say something

To afraid to step in

To afraid to get hurt

I should be used to the pain

But everyday its the same

Day in and day out

Fighting nonstop

Trapped

stuck listening

I feel like I'm going in circles

Its pointless to try

But I no longer want this

When will I feel brave

to get my shot

to make the fighting stop

Trapped alone

Listening, absorbing

I guess I should be used to it

But sometimes it hurts to hear

To be afraid you will get hurt

and I am to weak to help

I feel like its all my fault

maybe if I weren't such

a coward

I could stop it

I could stop the fighting

Night and day

Scared to say

stop the fighting

I feel like I'm going in circles

Its pointless to try

But I no longer want this

When will I feel brave

to get my shot

to make the fighting stop

Sometimes I close my eyes

And I can see a happy life

I can see a life that although

is far from perfect

Is happy

Where fighting is rare

A life of peacefulness

A life of happiness

Why do I have to waste

my day dreams

On wishes like that

why can't it already be like that

Why do I have to listen to it

Why can't I stop it
