*A challenge from Hoot to use the phrase...Everything is different, cause everything's the same.*
You came and sat beside me, with sadness in your eyes.
Eyes that look so much like mine from years of living lies.
As a child I remember the fights that you would have,
then us running to the basement hiding from my dad.
The years of verbal bashing and the bruises that youíd hide.
The looks from friends and family as you squeezed my hand and lied.
The simple acts of silence would enrage the beast in him.
When you tried hard to please him the fight would start again.
And now that I am married with children of my own
Iíve followed in your footsteps and gone with what Iíve known.
Different time and different place, different face and different name
everything is different, cause everythingís the same.
OK I need another challenge!!! Help!! hehe
