I wrote this poem about one of my best friends.
The innocent being punished
The guilty set free
The happy get happier
While the depressed must suffer, just like me
Her dad died
For past mistakes?
How many times does she have to break before it's done?
And her son
What will become of him?
Will he be punished for his mom's forgotten sins?
The lesson's learned
The demons burned
But still you make her twist and turn
When I defied you even more
And knew, if I could, I'd be a whore
Yet you do nothing
Except make me unattractive to any lady
Is that your plan?
Make me a man by torturing my friends?
When will it end?
They have done nothing to deserve your wrath
Victims in the aftermath of the wrong I've done
Harming everyone I love
What do you want from me?
Or will you just do this for eternity?
Maybe the only way is to say goodbye today and die
Giving my friends peace of mind
And in time, everything will be fine
But I won't for I have much to do
And even though you brought me pain, I still love you
So once again, I thank you, but I must ask you as well
Can you punish me instead
And save my friends from their private hell
