A ***** duct tape silences my mouth People say blood is thicker than water Yet your thunderous voice screams at me Does daddy cherish his daughter? So why can’t your eyes open and see You’ve become a Mein Kampf tyrant? You want my obedience and silence!
A ***** duct tape silences my mouth As it leaves a residue of disgust Must this be our memory? Though silent my heart feels unjust- Must you **** all my energy; Leave me to feel lost and astray As mental state starts to decay
A ***** duct tape silences my mouth Will your anger subside and be quiet? Fear suffocates vulnerable heart; Wrathful words ready for a riot; Confidence crushed as it’s torn apart. Verbal abuse moves like a torrent flood, Affecting those who share the same blood!
