An Ode To My Childhood

Shocked, confused
You ripped out my heart
Once tied together
Now torn apart

Shocked, confused
Angry and rejected
I tried to tell them
They just objected

Shocked, confused
Now out in the cold
I told the truth
They wouldn’t be told

Shocked, confused
Learning to cope
Living without love
Learning to hope

Shocked, confused
Now much wiser
Scars are healing
Eyes are wider

Accepting but angry
Life must go on
Learning to love
Teaching the son

Accepting, forgiving
Life can be tough
We must be tougher
Grab life by the scruff

Forgiving, forgetting
Not living in pain
Surrounded by love
Not repeating the cycle again
