The Whisper That Became a Roar - Listen While You Read- I did not make this video.  This was my empowerment song.

My life with you was stagnant and sad

Seeing your anger, most everything made you mad

The evil energy in the house one could cut with a knife

Living with you was so oppressive devoid of any light

I tried to hide it from the children, but to no avail

They saw your violence, and watched your spit sail

You held them captive so I would go mad

You coward, somehow you rationalized it would not make our kids sad

Your yelling was penetrating, we thought it would never end

Through the roof, our nerves you would send

Your words were so confusing, I got dizzy and felt like I was in hell,

You would follow me around the house, I finally fell

The letter of our demise shown to our kids

I only found it accidentally and hid

You were planning at christmas to blow us away

Our daughter only three told me in dismay

Mom, why does dad say we'll die on Christmas and then all come back?

I slept in their rooms, both of my kids, for weeks on my back

I tried ever so hard to act calm for you

When your older, you'll understand why mom felt so blue

Once the judge ordered him out it got worse

He would creep up behind me and suddenly lurch

Why are you afraid he would say with a grin?

You have fear issues and why are you so paranoid, and lift up my chin

He would trance like, hypnotize the kids and put them on the table

His eyes would glass over, and to move they were not able

Till I told him I would film him and show a judge for to see

He'd say I had skeletons in the closet and the judge would take them from me

I acted calm as if I were not afraid, of the one thing I could not lose

My beautiful children, the best thing I have ever done

My treasured daughter and my son

I can't believe I used to love this monster, who was he?

The judge moved him out of the house, But we had paid a grand fee

Remember when you'd follow me on the steps of our room, you would tell and pronounce to me, I had chest pain, that I was having a heart attack, God I had to leave

You kept coming at me till I had to run out of the house just to breathe

My God I believed you, You scared the life out of me,

I could not talk, nor think straight, My legs felt like they would fall from underneath,like spaghetti,

You used to seem beautiful, not ugly and even your face,

My therapist claimed, this is the worst classic case

I am not bitter

I am free

I am so happy

My life right now is for my kids, not me

You taught me a lot

What to look out for

My soft whisper has now become a roar

A wolf in sheeps clothing, but now I have my life back,

God has healed us, our lives are on track

Freedom oh sweet freedom, I do so love you

Thanks to all those that helped me through this, you were my strength and my glue,

I have my life back now, I thank you for loving me

Life is a gift, peace is what we now see

Thank you God for letting me have the courage to leave the strife

Not much can bother me now, I feel so grateful, and the world is our oyster, This is our new life!!!

You taught me a lot

What to look out for

My once soft whisper, Is forever a loud roar
