Your knees are skinned up

And your hair is cut short,

Naked, abused Barbies lay scattered.

Oh, how you seized the day.

Little girl with an Army hat on

It belongs to your daddy

Who you adore and go visit every other weekend.

He is teaching you how to shoot today,

And you think that is the best.

You are always the one scratching in

The lace dress your mom

Makes you wear every Sunday.

You don't care if you match or

If your hair is combed or a shoe is untied.

Little Tomboy jamming the aluminum can

In your bike to hear it roar

And racing the boys all the way home.

One day you will grow up to be a lady

They all say, and you deny every word.

Your mom is a lady, pretty and giddy,

with a handsome boyfriend, too.

Dont you want to be like her?

Ladies get the chair pushed out for them

In the nice restaurants and

Get the chair shoved into them at home.

Thats just not your thing.
We all have our demons that we run from.

To answer a question about the girl wanting to be like her dad, but the dad figure abusing the mother...the abuser is her stepfather/mother's boyfriend figure.
