Black Garbage Bags

Black Garbage Bags

© 2013 Words and Music by Diana Rasmussen and Chris Williams

Picture 928

He’d quit one more job, Didn’t like it, he said.
She believed his lies for years on end.
He called her worthless for the last time.
She gathered her things, in black garbage bags.

*

After years of abuse, she wanted more.
Put the kids in the car, And didn’t look back.
Trash or treasure?
Keep it? or throw it away?
In black garbage bags

*

She got a room at the shelter, for the next 30 days
He took all her things and threw them away, in black garbage bags.

*

After years of abuse, she wanted more.
Put the kids in the car, And didn’t look back.
Trash or treasure?
Keep it? or throw it away?
In black garbage bags

*

The life she had treasured, in black garbage bags.
He threw it away, in black garbage bags.

*

Trash or treasure?
Keep it?or throw it away?
Trash or treasure?
Keep it?or throw it away?
In black garbage bags.
