Feel Me...See Me (Turning From Abuse)
See my face know my heart,
see my fear torn apart.
See my face look at yours,
see your hands the hurt they cause.
See the bruise, see the scar,
see the burns from your cigar.
See the tears that streak my cheek,
see me crushed and think I'm weak.
Feel me shudder with the pain,
feel me shrinking once again.
Feel no pity, no remorse,
feel the power, feel the force.
Feel the change that's taking place,
see the anger on my face,
see the light now in my eyes,
see just how I realise.
Feel me close and sense my heat,
feel me gone and hear my feet
Feel my strength to turn and say,
‘see my back' and walk away!
