My Life - The Story Of Young Boy - Pt.1 - Poem by Ryan Lee Morris

She yelled and took the bottle
And then my dad yelled back
Young boy crying in the corner
Memories of my childhood are all black

“I hate you” she screams
But he hates her more
Their hatred builds
As they even their score

Pins her to the couch
Saying nasty things
Young boy is wondering
Is this the joy life brings?

Sister gets pregnant
One blames the other
Whiskey fix, does the trick
The young boy loses his mother

The working day is done
Father watching the TV
Young boy shows dad what he has done
Father doesn't want to see

Young boy makes a mistake
Dad calls young boy a name
Young boy crying in the corner
Filled with guilt and shame

Young boy seeking somebody
For his life he wants to share
Always seeking and never finding
Cause no one really cares

Mom moves away
Young boy so sad
Family broken
Parents glad

Their lives go on
But his does stay
Young boy, old life
With no time to play

Young boy now a teenager
Turns to drugs and booze
The pain he faced, he turns away
His past he wants to lose

Young boy then gets married
To a beautiful wife
Wants so bad to forget his past
And start a brand new life

Young boy yells at new wife
New wife yells at me
My young boy in the corner
The old cycle he does see

Young boy now starts seeking
To make my life brand new
For the benefit of my young boys
My pain they won't go through

New wife says to young boy
You're never going to change
She packs her bags and then she leaves
Another family now estranged

Young boy really hurting
Hoping pain won't last
For now he has a starring role
In the memories of his past

Young boy sitting wondering
Is the pain what it is worth
Broken people, doing broken things
To make a broken earth

Young boy now is fighting
Fighting for his life
Trying to make the old, brand new again
For his young boys and his wife

Young boy finds Our savior
That sits upon His throne
The abundant life he offers
Shows Young Boy he's not alone

The cycle it continues
But young boy wants to try
To fight for what his parents didn't
Then the cycle he'll defy

So young boy makes a decision
He also makes his creed
He hopes to fix his family
All to God he'll lead

So young boy gives it one last chance
With the hope that Jesus brings
Young boy knows it's not over
Til the fat lady sings.......
