Actions Speak Louder Than Words

He said he'd love her forever and beyond
She wanted to believe it was true

He said he only wanted to be with her
She knew he shared his life with another

He said he wanted to shout his love to the world
She knew she was the only one who ever heard his words

He said he'd give up everything to be with her
She seemed to be the only thing he ever gave up.

Picket Fences Become Prison Bars

The young girl dreamed of a life behind picket fences
A husband, two children and a dog to complete what,
In her mind, was the picture perfect existence.

She tried and tried to find it, but there was always something wrong
A husband who acted more like a child
Another who acted more like a controller.

At last she found the picket fence life
A husband, three children and a cat
In a house where she was a pampered wife and mother

Till the day when the picket fence looked more like prison bars
Holding her back from what she dreamed
And who she could be

She longed to break free, to spread her wings
But responsibility and obligation held her down
And tied her to the life she'd already chosen.
