Beautiful Disaster

Long Ago

Stop crying
Everything will be okay
I try to hide
The fear inside
That I don't know when it will end

I hear them yelling
always yelling
As I sit at the top of the stairs
next to my brother who is scared
I try to comfort him
When things start getting grim
I can't go on like this much longer

I want to stop it
But I can't
not without getting hurt.
Not like it matters anymore
The damage has been done.

I look back now
At the memories
Trying to escape
I can't get away from this past I've lived
But I can try for a better Tomorrow
