I just want peace
is that too much to ask?
I just want silence
to put and end to the past

I just want quiet
for my head to calm
I just want love
for me and those around

I just want justice
and for truth to be held
by all of those
who hide in their shell

I just want my family to understand
that my pain isn't their pain
that i must fight it alone

I just want those
who took my innocence
to pay with their lives
and suffer in every sense

I just want my family
to understand
that when I cry
I don't need a hand
what I need is silence
and maybe a hug
but not a word to be spoken
except by chance
maybe a "daddy, I love you"
or a "honey, I know"
thats all I need
for my feelings to show
