Me And My Girl - Poem by Wendy mckee

As I stand at the sink with my fingers clenched
He's shouted at her once again
Just because the mess of her toys
She can't play like other girls and boys
She's worried she'll make too much mess
Never relaxed always stressed
When daddys around, she hopes he'll go
Off to work soon but he's being slow
She tells me, I wish daddy would hurry
So I can play and not have to worry
It breaks my heart to see her frown
When he's shouting at her and putting her down
For a little bit of mess that's not too bad
That she forgets to tidy, then wishes she had
I don't like, his way at all
He threatens he'll throw them at the wall
He's stood on them once, broke a few
He wouldn't care even if they were new
I wished we lived in a house on our own
Me and my girl, without him, to moan
We'd be happy, we'd have a life
I wouldn't have to be his wife.
We'd start afresh, we'd start to feel free
Its not just her he gets at, its also me
For being out too long or forgetting the pots
Spending time at my sisters or not washing his socks
He once locked me out for staying out too long
It was an Halloween party, I'd done nothing wrong
I was over the road, for just over an hour
I think with him, its all about power
The power to control, the power to dictate
I was freezing cold sat outside by the gate
I want my girl to grow up being herself
Not having to be something else
Not having to worry about trivial things
The mess of her room, or whatever life brings
Its getting closer, one day it will be
Me and my girl, so happy and free
Start a new life, start a new chapter
Lots of new memories to capture
Free to stay out, or free to sleep over
No more worries as she gets older
We'll keep plodding on, we'll keep being controlled
Until I'm ready to really explode
That day will be here, I hope it comes fast
Me and my girl still remembering the past
The future will be brighter, we'll start a new life,
And me, no longer his wife.
So as I stand at the sink with my fingers clenched.....
Go on....Go on.....Do it again.........! ! ! !
