When he hit me the first time
I thought I would die
He said it will never happen again
But that was a lie.
I never told my mom
For she would die
So I covered it up and continued to lie.
Lying for him lying for me
How could I love a man who beats me?
The question still puzzles me
I thought I could make him feel free
I thought he really loved me
I never thought he would beat me
I used to think that he completed me.
But now I know this couldn't be
Who would of thought that this would happen to me!
He made me different he made me hide.
I covered up all my feelings and wanted to die
And once this started showing on the outside
My feelings I could no longer hide
So my mother took me aside
And told me baby girl God is always on your side.
So please don’t hide.
And let God show you what true love is all about!
