My Life - Poem by Jason Bass

My life wasn't always so great
But everything else became worse
I thought nothing could make me break
Now i feel as if I've been cursed
At the bitter age of 15 years old
...My parents divorce, began to take it's toll
On rainy days i wish it snowed
Because raindrops gave my tears control
In school i could never concentrate
Or would refuse to do the work and turn it in late
During lunch I'd give myself time to think
By taking long walks I never ate
There was never a day that would go my way
Ever since my parents split Dad to his new woman
And Gob to any nob with a bottle of sherry to champaign where had mum gone
Had she no shame
There are no words that could ever explain
What hides behind my silence and pain
Every home is always the same
I come home and unpack my things
Then when i get ready to change
I still wait for my mum to call my name
Simple things such as that
Would make me want my mother back
Or remembering the first time i swung a bat
Making my dad proud every time would dropp a bonehead at the match
But every night a tear in my eye and realize they are gone
Then comes out my faithfull FYC song and listening to each letter
I promise to wait and never give up, i know you lot out there think ive lost the plot but i know the value of wat i havent got...
