Darren was asleep, but awakened in a panicked fright,
only to hear his parents arguing again, in the middle of the night.
They were screaming, shouting, and shoving one another,
so he jumped out of bed and saw his father hit his mother.
He lay quiet as he released his own tears.
Thinking about the beating she took over the years.
His parents fought every single day.
He wondered why his mother chose to stay.
They fought about everything; from this to that.
Domestic violence weighed heavy in his backpack.
