Treasure Island

Crystal Castro

(06-09-1983 / Tacoma Washington)


you say you have
a lot of hate or so you thought
so is this hate against
the three children in this world you have brought

whatever happened
to the way we used to be
we always did things together
we were always care listen free

your kids are worried about you
get that through your head
I really don't ever want to hear
' your daddy has been found dead '

we're trying to help you
but you act like you don't care
things happen in life
but hey I heard life's not fair

don't turn around
and tell people everything I've done
and I know its no excuse but
it was all in good fun

I realize one thing
that it wasn't the life for me
I realized I had to go up
and raise my own family

that was then this is now
so why can't you see
that we're talking about you
we're not talking about me

go ahead and deny
that you have a problem
because we're not trying to destroy you
we're trying to help you sell them

I really don't know
why youand mom think
you can walk out of our lives
that you can just lose us with one single blink

your kids are in pain to dad
our lives have been nothing but bullshit
you know what we've been through s
o I shouldn't have to explain it

you haven't been there for us f
or at least 10 years now
but to me having kids
is somewhat a sacred vow

I know for a fact that
I will never treat my kids this way
because I am learning
from mommy and daddy's mistakes

don't take this out
on us or the family
Because we're just trying to help
so we can all be happy

we love you daddy
and you know we always will b
ut for now my heart is
the one that stands so still

you practically put
all the blame on me
your very last born the
one you call your baby

don't you see
the pain we're all going through
we are all worried
and thought this was the right thing to do

so go ahead and do whatever
do what makes you feel better
you go have your fun
but keep in mind that we will worry about you forever....

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
