A man hits his son to teach him a lesson,
The punishments vary,
He likes to keep him guessin’.
The boy grows up with a burden to carry.
The boy becomes a man,
That man finds himself a wife,
They have themselves a son,
They start themselves a life.
But, it’s rife with strife,
From the start.
The man hurts his boy,
Because of a broken heart.
The boy leaves home young,
With his heart also torn apart.
He grows up high strung.
Infamous with the law.
No deeds of his will go unsung.
Until one day.
A new life had sprung.
A baby girl was here to stay
Her father became a boozer,
Working hard to drown his sorrows.
In his drunken stupors, he’d abuse her,
Then drink more to forget tomorrow.
The girl evolves to be shaken,
From sporadic trauma undertaken.
Her anxieties don’t take her far,
As her self-esteem collapses like a neutron star.
All her problems seem immense.
All people appear with only pretense,
From outside her pretty heart.
She winds up with a wicked man,
To be her counterpart.
Then without a plan…
The pain train shuns no one.
