Pre-Arranged - Poem by Kevin Carney

It’s a pre-arranged destiny…
You have a date and a time…
The place is set…
You just can’t help yourself.
It will lead to your own self demise…
You reach for that rifle…
You climb those stairs.
They told you when you were odd…
It still reverberates in your mind…
The prom queen you sought, just laughed in your face…
It took all your courage to ask…
Such a child you had been…
Your mother torments…
How… no good your father was…
Hell you don’t even remember him.
She played on you like a piece of meat…
The predator she would always be.
Toying ever so brutally before it eats…
Scaring you for life, to the point of no return…
Never could you return from the edge of normality.
Telling you…. you’d never be a man…
