Treasure Island

Casen Velasquez

(05/07/1991 / Ogden, UT)


I hate hearing about it,
I hate looking at it,
I hate Prison,
My dad is in there,
I wish he wasn't,
Met him once,
It was pretty cool,
Prison took my dad away,
Took him,
Put him in prison clothes,
Took his rights away,
Took his freedom,
It took everything,
I'm his only son,
That talks to him,
I'm his only son,
That wants him to do good,
Cares about him,
I only care because,
He's my dad,
I can't change that,
Nobody can,
Nobody will,
My mom knows it,
My grandma knows it,
Everyone knows it,
I hate hearing about it,
I hate looking at it,
I hate it,
Prison took my dad.

    Yeah, my dad's in prison to, but prison didn't take him away. He put himself in there for all the stupid thing he does. I sometimes feel like his never gonna learn his lesson and if there is really a lesson to be learned. I hate him and love him at the same time and then there's days when I just don't care about him, but somehow he keeps slipping into my mind. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
