We Carried It With Us
We carried it with us and never said a word
about what we experienced, seen and heard,
My first clear memories were at the age of four
There was no escaping from behind homes closed door
I felt the guilt as it tore us up inside,
We stood quietly as we continued to hide,
Later in years we tried to flee;
but, got returned home to our secret misery.
We carried it with us; and, we never said a word.
The lies, the abuse, and the torture gave each our shame,
brought forth more innocent in a life so insane
We all paid dearly each day,
Lord help us if had anything in public to say
We carried it with us; and, never said a word.
Father tried to protect us as he angered to;
for, he was cancer filled and knew not what to do
He knew not of how men took the innocence we had,
or, how she got money for making us sad!
The jobs she supposedly left home for
was in another mans bed being a whore!
We carried it with us and we never said a word.
She is the final reason dad and sister lye in eachs grave,
She pulled his plug and burnt sister without trying her life to save.
She made a deal with the devil and sealed each their fate.
Does real love exist in the world of hate?
Will we meet Satan and his helpers before Heavens Gate?
Can I forgive her for all the damage she has done?
We carried it with us and never as children said a word!
