Ever since I was young…I’ve feared men and their intentions…

Too many experiences where harm was done to me with no interventions…

The pain always returns to its source…

But for so long my fears have controlled my life’s course…

But all men aren’t the same…

And I no longer want to live in these golden prison frames…

I saw only darkness and rage in his eyes…

But I know he was always a victim of his own self delusional lies…

Back then I was helpless and alone…

Every nerve and trigger set on fire by his condescending tones…

I wish he hadn’t brought a loaded gun to every fight we had…

He might have raised me but he was always a father to me…never a dad…

But freedom can only be found in forgiveness and I must let go…

Terror and suffering…he was always putting on love as a painful show…

But I hope he finds peace where ever he is and where ever he may be…

Sometimes when it’s dark enough…that’s when you truly see..
