Consequences of Not Being his Blood-Child

by Someone Invisible   Mar 2, 2016


I've been through the bad lands
I'm now afraid of man's hands.
I've had many a rough night
So I try to keep men in my sight,
Because I did as I was told
But I didn't fit his mold.
So he punched me down
And kicked me around
Till I finally acted how I "should"
Meaning he'd said Jump

    Wow! Very powerful and unfortunate you had to endure this man. I hope you haven't allowed him to continue shaping your life, I'm glad you got out. Stay strong!

    Hello

    The title struck me as soon as I read it; we often hear stories about stepfathers and abuse they can deal out to their stepchildren (not always, I should point out).
    People who treat others this way don't need a reason to do it - they just thrive off causing others misery.
    This is a well written piece with some good rhyming throughout and an important theme.
    Take care and all the best,
    Ben
