Hit, Stomp, Kick, POW
Crying on the floor
Cleaning up my bruises, wondering if I can take anymore
Looking around, the sound of snores
While I pace here looking toward the door.
Can I get out of here tonight?
The closest public place, the corner store
This is torture and abuse
How did I get here?
How could I have this situation keep me in fear?
I’ve stayed too long under this spell too long
But I want to be gone, you to go to hell for your wrongs
But I don’t have the strength
I call the police but won’t gain an inch
A restraining order on you but what’s that gonna do?
You keep coming back and
I lack love of myself to see it through
Lack of law and order to see it through
So, I go in and lay beside you
Here we go again
Don’t the neighbors hear my screams?
They don’t want to intervene
Scared to get involved, unresolved
Don’t know what will happen to them
I’m cleaning up my blood
The alcohol rub
The cycle continues ‘til the end
It doesn’t have to end
I don’t have to stay
I hear a voice say
God’s love now awaits
His arms embrace.
Living water dousing flames of fear and you hear
You are accepted, you are loved
Now go and say no I won’t take it no mo’
Your power is broken
I have spoken
The power of God’s word sets me free from this yoke of bondage
I will no longer be your puppet
But I will be a child of God, strong
Living for the one who loves me unconditionally
I will be what he’s destined for me
Won’t live the old life no more
For I am a woman strong, adorned in beauty and grace
No longer hiding my face
But let my scars be seen
So I can let others dream and believe
That they can be free too
It’s all up to you
God will see you through
But make the decision to do what you need to do to be safe
And run the race God gave to you
You don’t have to be fast, but last in victory to the end
Yes, the journey’s been hard, but Lord I’m still here
You tried to hold me down
But I’m still around to share my testimony of Overcoming!
Thank you Jesus I’m free
And walking in truth
I’ll wait for my Boaz like Ruth
No more abuse
I feel good living my life
I got heaven on in my eyes
And so I rise fully, wholly
Loving me, accepting me
Free and free indeed
And so I push on in my journey of life.
