Man / Child - Poem by J R Reynolds

Abusive and violent
Is how the world sees me
Most avoid contact all together
Simply to appease me.

I have a hard head and a smart mouth
My attitude normally runs thin
Cross me on when my mood is foul
Your likely to get your face kicked in.

At six foot three and two hundred fifty pounds
My fists can back up my words
I refuse to back down from anyone alive
Come policemen, boxers or drunkards.

But deep down inside my self
I question why I am this way
Why am I such a hypocrite
Leading a life so risque?

Looking at the reflection in the mirror
I see a scared little child
Outcast from a normal life
Instead living a life defiled.

Never before have I spoken these words
But I feel like I am among friends
Knowing there are others like me
Searching for the day our pain finally ends.
