The origins of my scars begin and end with you. 

You took me in to cast me out only the best would do.

You built an attempted image, wouldn't even let me cut my hair

You broke me and beat me, in your favourite chair.

My blood it stained the carpet

that time you broke my nose

I still have the memory

what ever gets me to sleep goes

My eyes were always blackened 

foundation on my face

a thirteen year old man, who could do make up with grace

beaten at the school house 

because you paid the kids

You covered your own self

but left me too the fall

You told me I was too weak

that I must be toughened 

but it was you who was the weak one 

Your twisted mind a disgrace 

When I told the family, they called me a liar

And I got beaten and left in the briars

When you speak to me, disgust is all I hear

for you broke my mind so much

I'm still dependent on you

When you lit that accelerant 

burning all my skin

You left a mark you could not hide

And here we go again

There rests a bullet in my hip

And it belongs to me

It's the one thing that I can say

You did not do to me

financially unstable 

And mentally worse

You broke me down and beat me 

until you could get rid of me.

at 13 I was kicked out, on Christmas day 

You gave me a lump of coal

I looked at with dismay.

You broke my confidence forever

You took my heart and soul

And now I sir wish you to die

For this world nobody leaves alive

everyone tells me, you only get one mom and dad

but I guess I must've hit the jackpot 

I got two it seems

For neither pair wants me

one doesn't know about me

To others family is an anchor

tied to the shore

for me it was a wildfire 

that left open sores

I have only my poetry

no friends in sight at all

For i am just a broken man

still healing from it all.
