When Tornado Sirens Go Off : In Memory of sisters Ashley Key and Britny Haarp

Updated on July 26, 2012

By no means in any of this is any dark shadow cast on my daughter,

"The reason she ( Ashley ) was at my daughter's house ( Britny ), she made the decision it's time to dust herself off and lead a good life, for her daughter and her family. It's apparent ... she was making an attempt to protect her sister. By no means in any of this is any dark shadow cast on my daughter, " a statement from their father Paul Haarup after his girls had been found.

When Tornado Sirens Go Off

What am I doing wrong?
Why can't anyone understand you?
What is wrong with me? What about you?
Everything I say everything I do it goes wrong
Everything seems to upset you so much more

All I wanted was to do what is right
And I thought that that was you too
When we're alone things seem okay
But now it's like I don't know anything
I can't be sure what you're about to do

If only my hands would stop shaking
It would only take a moment maybe
But what am I supposed to do about it
Tell me once then yell it loudly twice
Talking does no good now that you
Have made up your daydreams of me
But that is all just made up stuff in you
God what the hell am I supposed to do'
Now that it's just me my sister and you
Nothing can stop it now unless you do
But that ain't what you wanted today

Tell me please what can I do?
When all I ever did was love you?
What going on with me? What about you?
Everything I say everything I do it goes wrong
Everything seems to upset you so much more

All I wanted was to do what is right
And I thought that that was you too
Because I have never been so scared
Never been so frightened next to you
Like I am just another bump in the road

Is this how my last nightmare ending
In the middle of something so crazy
Just what should I could I do about this
Help me understand for the last time
Huddled frightened what you will do
Can't keep my voice just low enough
Justice won't be mine in this lifetime
Because my sister lays beside you
Begginging pleading for her babies
Just before you took her life away

Please just tell what to do?
Please tell what am I doing wrong?
When all I ever did was show love you?
Please just wake up come on it's over now
Please please just wake up dude it is over

All I wanted was to do what is right
And I thought that that included you
God let them get their wings tonight
God is with my sister me and angels
God hopes someone can forgive you

The title comes from the quotes of Britny Haarp on Facebook 2012

Isn't it time that we as a society stop violence against women?

In Memory of Ashley Key and Britny Haarup. Two sisters who were found in a field in northwest Missouri. It is sad that this kind of violence against women can happen to two grown women still in the 21st Century. Blessed be Ashley and Britny. Be at Peace.

      Such a deep and profound work for these two unfortunate women. It is sad .... truly sad.

      Just to be sure I am clear, this was just an event that happened on the national news. I did not know them personally. But I found it very sad and was taken back by it. I think it is just one of many such horrible thing that happen to women in our nation, and elsewhere. But it should not be allowed to keep happening in this century. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d

      This reminds me of a hub I wrote for a 16 year old boy who was killed a few blocks away from my house. Somehow, that morning I perceived something awful in the air and I had a vision that I couldn't understand until later on that night.

      This is a gorgeous tribute you've come up with. I'm afraid to ask how/who killed them and why. :-/
