You breathe fire of hate at me,

Just breathe

You breathe fire of hate at me,
I am just a woman,
I chose not the life I was born to,
Did you?

Put down that gun,
Turn around and run,
Let the bullets fall,
Not fly,

Go back and tend to your clock,
That gun please do not cock,
I am war torn – in shock,
Are we not all of the same flock?

I want to be free,
Neither of us are a villain,
I could learn to love you,
My desperate words are true,
There is only pain here, no fun,
Mothers hear my call
Please do not mock…
