Nov 2018
She is a young girl
Who cry tears to sleep
In darkness her body curls
Falling apart as she weeps.

It is not the first time
The lullaby she heard
It has been quite a while
Since she last laughed.

Screaming of a woman
Beaten by her husband
In the night of suburban
Her body bleeding wound.

The girl musters up courage
Runs while he hits the wife
Break into neighborโ€™s place
Plea for dear motherโ€™s life.

Police arrive in minutes
He is caught for violence
Finding motherโ€™s heartbeats
Have gone in silence.
Stop domestic violence.
