Goodbye Parents


i say goodbye, now don't cry
already told you i wanted to die
this pain is to much to bare
and it's not like you ever did care

u don't even want to see
u need to stop beating me
why do u hurt me so much
i just wanted to feel ur touch

feel safe loved and more
but instead u pointed to the door
go to your f-ing dad u said
while u were getting ready for bed

went to dad and ringed his door
better prepare to get hit some more
because he only drinks beer
he loves hitting me and calls me a queer

can't believe he hates me even more
there has to be a way to settle the score
thirteen years old and alone
no place to call my home

then they wonder why why why
does that kid want to die
i need to get away from this life
maybe i should stab them with a knife

smacked myself in the head
and said how can you think that
that aint me but all i want for you to see
u never have or will be a mom or dad to me

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
