My mother is screaming
I hear my dad yell
After mom tells him to go straight to hell
I hear a loud noise
As my mom throws a plate
my dad is filled with even more hate
He calls her more names
Names I would never repeat
He storms out of the room,
after she slaps him real hard
As he approaches,
I run out to the front yard
I wander around,
feeling helpless and weak
As though I was the one who'd been slapped on the cheek
I walk over to my dogs,
and hug them really tight
As they lick me, I think, something here is not right
Why must my parents fight everyday?
Why can't my father simply obey?
Why can't my parents just get along?
Is this wish of mine really so very wrong?
Where is the love that they once seemed to share?
Where is this love?
Oh where, dear God, where?
Is my father really so bad?
Is that why my mom gets so very mad?
All of this fighting just makes me so sad
Where oh where is the love that my parents once had?
