Reliving The Nightmare - Poem by Craig Mize

I remember it like it was yesterday,
The tears was pouring from our eyes
I felt the hurt that you felt,
I cried the tears that you cried
I even bled the blood that you bled.
I am you made all over again,
The mirror image of you I know that I was
I swear that I hated the way that he treated you
I couldn't stand the screaming,
I couldn't stand the beating,
I couldn't stand the abuse
They say that I am my fathers son,
But that couldn't be further from the truth
I loved him Lord knows that I did
He was my hero that couldn't do no wrong
I was ignorant to the fact that all he did was wrong.
I can not forgive myself for not protect you
I was suppose to be stronger than that
I wasn't suppose to be afraid
I was suppose to be there for you
So why was I so afraid?
Now those same tears that cried, I'm currently crying
That same pain that you felt I am currently feeling
The same death that you died I'm currently dying
So now as I lay my head down to sleep
I pray to you and the Lord my soul to keep
