One Day


As she walks home from school once more,

she knows what will happen as she walks through the door.

 He'll grab her by the hair and push her to the floor,

he'll beat her up until she can't take anymore.


She covers up the bruises well,

if her friends ask how, she tells them she fell.

 No-one could guess she gets beat up by her dad,

and his only excuse is that she makes him mad.


He tells her he hates her, he says she's no use,

she has nobody else so she takes the abuse.

He says it's her fault that her mum walked away,

and every day since, it's been her that's had to pay.


She deserves a better life and she dreams of being a star,

one day she'll leave this man and she'll go somewhere far.

His eyes are full of anger, resentment and hate,

so let's just hope she doesn't leave it too late.
