I don’t want you…..I just want my child

You  don’t  have  to  want  me….

there  is  no  vegetation  in  your  land.

In  fact,  that  rich  soil  that  was  once  there,  has  been  replaced  with  dry  sand.

I  spent  years  trying  to  build  that  which  was  already  broken.

You  beat  me  with  your  mind,  and  your words,  which  were  spoken.

You  know  I’ve  been  done,

with  you I’m  an  empty  shell,

you  can  gather  up  your  self-pride,

and  take  it   with  you , straight  to………

I  won’t  take  it  there,  because  I’m  not  like  you

but  I  will  fight  for  what’s  mine….you’ll  see  in  just  a  few.

I  don’t  mean  with  hands,  but  with  my  mind,

it  would  have  behooved  you,  if  you  learned  how  to  be  kind.

But  now  you  sit  in  this  reality,

where  you seek  strength  through  weakness,

I  am  glad  I  now  see.

You  can’t  hurt  the  one,

who  hid  you  from  the  sun,

kept  your  flesh  from  burning,

took  many  bullets  from  the  gun.

I  was  there  for  you,  when  even  your  own  blood  turned  away,

and  with  harshness,  that  is  the  way  that  you  repay?

That  is  fine,  because  in  time,  you  will  see.

that  the  worst  thing  that  you  could  have  ever  done,

was  hurt  him  and  hurt  me.
