From 4 To 2 - Poem by Benjamin Goudberg
Most people do not know what to say when I relate the story of my life.
Perhaps its that they do not realize one person can endure so much
More than anything they are in shock that I am still standing
But what is most upsetting is the phrase, 'I know its hard'
Truth is, they have no idea in the world
There is no counseling for what I have been through
I am alone in my experiences and not a single person comes close
Well maybe one other - my father
He and I face the world each day - unsure about what to do
How does one walk out the door with a smile on their face
After having dealt with pain that we feel everyday
No one can imagine the amount of hardship
My mother taken by Cancer when I was 13
My brother taken by a Car Accident 8 months later - I was 14
My stepmother taken by Cancer when I was 18
You cannot feel what I do
You cannot see what I see
You do not cry yourself to sleep as I do
This is my lonely path to walk
But I will not give up.
