    DRIP DROP DRIP
    THOSE ARE THE SOUNDS OF THE RAIN OUTSIDE THE WINDOW
    OR MAYBE ITS THE SOUND OF UR TEARS FALLIN TO UR PILLOW
    ANOTHER NIGHT, ANOTHER FIGHT
    HE LEFT, AINT NO TELLIN WHEN HE'S COMIN HOME
    HE DOESN'T EVEN CARE, HE JUST LEAVES U ALONE

    THIS IS THE 8TH TIME THAT I HAD TO COME OVER
    AND UR TEARS ARE SOAKIN INTO MY SHOULDER
    IM PASSIN U THE TISSUE AND UR ASKIN 4 MY ADVICE
    IF I TOLD U ONCE, I TOLD U TWICE
    NO... I TOLD U A MILLION TIMES...
    TO LEAVE... TO WALK AWAY... TO FIND A NEW HOME 4 UR HEART
    I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY U LET HIM TEAR U APART
    UR KIDS SEE U CRYING, I KNOW THATS THE ONLY REASON WHY U STAY
    HE'S NEVER HOME.. HE DOESNT FATHER THEM ANYWAY...
    IT HURTS ME TO SEE U LIKE THIS
    BUT IM HERE WITH U TO FIGHT THIS

    BOOM BAM BOOM
    THATS THE SOUND OF UR BAGS HITTIN THE TRUNK OF MY CAR
    ONE LAST LOOK AT THE HOUSE, ITS A BRAND NEW START
    U ASK ME IF UR MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION
    BUT UR HEART IS TELLIN U SUMTHIN, SO I SUGGEST THAT U LISTEN
    PUT THE KIDS IN THE BACK SEAT, THEY WANNA KNOW WHERE'S DADDY
    THE KIDS DONT UNDERSTAND, THATS WHATS EVEN MORE SAD TO SEE
    WE'RE HEADED TO MY HOUSE, U CAN STAY AS LONG AS U WOULD LIKE TO
    BUT REMEMBER THIS IS UR DECISION, IM NOT GONNA FIGHT U
    IM GLAD U FINALLY GOT THE COURAGE AND U FINALLY GRASPED THE STRENGTH
    TO WALK AWAY FROM PAIN AND SACRIFICE THE STAKES
    ALL IM THINKIN IS...
    I HOPE THAT U DONT GO BACK...

    I lost my sister to a situation like this. I can't tell you how many times I heard that same Boom Bam Boom of her bags hittin my trunk and by the time the sun rose she was callin him to give her a ride home. This was a beautiful message.

    This poem was sad but life lesson was learned. It takes something bad to happen to make something good come.

    "I won't go back.........I can't go back"

    "Girl.....thank you for saving me,
    everynight I prayed to God Almighty,
    to save me from this wicked hell,
    my kids aren't me and I am not him.
    At first...it was great,
    he took me on walks
    and told me I was the only one.
    Suddenly...it changed,
    bringing home numbers,
    I knew that was girls,
    but he insisted...wasn't.
    I fell deep thinking and believing
    he would go back....
    Then came the blows,
    which I took one by one.
    Not only where their blows to my face
    but to my broken heart.
    I stayed there believing he was my man,
    telling my family that I was his stand.
    Then.....one night, my mom called,
    told me if I didn't leave
    then I wasn't a real woman.
    At that point....some one had to be both man and woman,
    I had to change not just for me but for my son and daughter.
