Kidnapped and Alive

by Krissey   Aug 7, 2006

When they got married years ago
He could always make her laugh
Now he was an addicted alcoholic
Just a worthless piece of trash

He had visitation rights
My mom hated dropping me off
His smoke always brought me down
I’d always come home with a bad cough

He had never laid a hand on me
Until one crazy, drunken night
He hit the right side of my face with a vodka bottle
I never even had a chance to fight

I walked home that night
With an eye that was purple and blue
I was grabbed into another person’s car
I knew walking home wasn’t the right thing to do

I couldn't tell who the person was
But for a moment I didn't care
I was glad that they had taken me
Away from my father's hazy stare

It sounded like a woman’s voice
It was to dark to even see
“I believe you have the wrong child
I don’t know what you’d want in me”

I waited a while and no reply
So I decided to let it go
At least for now I was safe
No ounce of fear would I show

This person was driving really fast
My eye hurt to bad to even care
I can’t believe his drinking got that way
I just can’t believe he dared

No wonder mama left him
He wasn't safe to be around
I only wished that I could help him
Before he went six feet underground

We pulled into a hotel lot
“We’ll both be safer here for a while”
She pulled off her black and white hood
“Its ok baby, you can smile”

I was too surprised to even talk
I couldn't believe it was my mom
All I could do was sit there and cry
Thanking God that nothing had gone wrong

Who knows what else dad could have done tonight
Just one hit was a surprise
I’ve never been more thankful to be kidnapped
And knowing the whole way I’d make it out alive
