If my body could speak
It would tell you stories of sexual abuse, suicide attempts, drug addiction
stories of all those drug invested nights
I've live threw
The countless times I injected those drugs into a more than willing vain
Or how I drank so much liquid courage I felt above anyone ... anything at all
This body would tell you about a Christmas eve night she'll never forget
The 12 gauge ripped, tore, and spread right threw my flesh & came out on the other side
She'd tell you those close calls almost dying from the drug over doses
leaving her weak and confused but no brain damage ever occurred
She'd speak of all the nights that spanned over years of her life where he'd rape her...
So many stories I have, yet the best has been saved for last
I'll salvage this life what little I may have,
I'll take it and run!
When I return you'll see I've made it far beyond anyone’s expectations
