Woman's Fate (Sweet Red Rose)04/01/03
Annie, come sit here with me.
Let's talk about what's yet to be.
You're still confused about this world,
How it should treat a decent girl.
So let me set your mind at rest,
Annie, you deserve the very best.
You must be allowed to smile,
Or just sit back and think awhile...
Of all the years that you have missed,
Through being hurt instead of kissed.
I really just don't understand,
What kind of monster, beast or man,
Could do to you the things he's done.
What hollow victory has he won?
He took a child, that's what you were,
And beat you like he would a cur.
He bent your mind and warped your soul.
He left you bitter, hurt, and cold.
He bruised your body, broke your heart,
And ripped your hopes and dreams apart.
You should never feel ashamed,
For he alone must bear the blame.
Though you may hurt a little longer,
His hate has served to make you stronger.
I can't atone for what he's done,
But you deserve to see the sun.
And if I could only find a way,
You'd bask in sunshine every day.
And all your sorrow, and your pain,
Would fade away, like April's rain.
Listen girl, you hold the power,
To grow and blossom like a flower.
And when you spread your petals wide,
You'll taste the love so long denied.
And when you've bloomed,
well, this man knows...
You'll put to shame -
The Sweet Red Rose...

I too know the sting of this kind of abuse, and survived through much grace.
Once having bloomed, no looking back, never again to repeat that tack.
