IN THE NAME OF MY SAFETY

 

Mandated by law

Required to endure

In the name of my safety

 

My heart races

I shiver in shoes

In the name of my safety

 

Nightmares at night

Unable to sleep

In the name of my safety

 

Canít think straight

Canít pay attention

In the name of my safety

 

Canít feel safe

Canít feel calm

In the name of my safety

 

My body jolts

An electric shock

In the name of my safety

And everyone says

I must endure

In the name of my safety

 

Woken at night

Must get out

In the name of my safety

 

Iíll thank them

They tell me

In the name of my safety

 

No one else

Feels this way

In the name of my safety

 

I know why

But pain still comes

In the name of my safety
