Break The Cycle - Poem by Jacob Courtney

Break the Cycle

You could of been there standing beside
Me teaching me what I needed to know
While living in this life. You could have
Walked beside me holding my hand
Showing me what a real man who
Loves his son would do. You could
Have played ball with me telling me
About your dad and the fun you had
Together. You could have done so much
Yet you didn't you never showed me
What a father's love is you never took
Me to play ball you never once showed
Me how to treat a lady right. All you
Gave me was pain. My dreaded memories
Full of anger so full of rage. You took
My innocent mind fracturing it beneath
You stern fist. You fed me lies and deceit
You failed to be my dad. Now as a father
I must learn the role you failed to teach me
I must now break the cycle you started
I must now be the man another taught me.
Your forgiven for your not my troubles anymore.
