Breath is freedom, you can leave

Always have a card up your sleeve.

Don’t let him trap you in this hell

Don’t fall for his twisted love spell.

You have power, you have grace

Never let him strike you in the face.

It’s your body, it’s your life

Whether you’re a mother, daughter or wife .

Tears hold secrets, silence not your friend

You must act now, before a violent end .

It will never get better in the same place

Remember the evil behind his face .

He hides in a cloak of lies and misdeed

Don’t fall victim to his emotional greed .

For the rest of your life he will take and take

Every day feeling like emotional rape.

Its time to act escape, escape.
