Today I stepped out of my own skin and into another less fun

Upon this day I learned my life would never be the same

I now had to become a mother at the age of five and be molested till my age of 13

I cant sit and cry no more you see.

My baby sister is crying out for her ma again, so I must attend her and have no tears in my eyes.

Here comes my brother, to rescue me? No, but to worship my father who is just a man without a heart.

What about my older sister? No, not her either.

Momma, where are you?

Why cant I have a better daddy who didn't hurt me so?

Does God hate me?

No, that can't be so. He even told me he didn't.

The years passed by, and I grew and grew.

And look here, my broken heart is being renewed.

So please I ask leave it alone

Cause it has been through much more than you could ever know.
