Laugh Or CryLaugh Or Cry
The day has been long and cruel.
Imprints of your hands left upon my skin.
Hues of purple and blue hidden under my sleeves.
Knots from broken ribs held in with a binding shirt.
Screams of your hatred still ring inside my aching head.

Help me LORD to find a safe place to stay.
Fear fills me as a I hear someone outside the door.
Standing straight as I could, after hearing a knock, "come inI say."
Before me stood a man in blue.

Comfort was found I felt all alone.
Peace was f
