Unfair?

You  tell  me  that,  as  if  I  CARE…
I  didn’t  TAKE  him…
you  tossed  your  chips  up  in  the  air.

You  gambled  away  gold  coins,
and  couldn’t  pay  your dues.
That’s  not  my  fault  you’re  walking  around,
in  hole  filled  poor man  shoes.

I  sat  like  a  vagabond  and  begged  for  “change”,
you  sat  in  blind  “safety”,
as  I  became  deranged.

I  lost  myself  for  a  minute  or  two,
in  my  weakness  you claimed  you  loved  me…
through  and  through.

I  looked  you  straight  in  your  soul,
and  flashed  my  bright  smile,
now  I’m  the  one  driving…
and  I  can  go  on  for  miles.

Safety  first!
Buckle up!

My  foot  made  of  lead….
your  intentions,
corrupt.

My  heart  powers  the  battery,
My  tears  fuel  the  tank,
My  anger  revs  the  engine,
You  have  yourself  to  thank.

This  woman…..
NEVER  scorned,
but  I  fought  hard  and  lost  years…..

Scared  submission,
turned  intelligent…
That’s  what  you  should  have  feared.

I  lost  all  sense,
of  man-made  “right”,
my  teeth  rip  straight  to  the  marrow,
when  I  fight.

You  got  me  here,
you  made  me  strong,
even  if  your  way  was  wrong.

Now  your  tears  wash,
the  dirt  off  my  face,
that  I  acquired  when  I  ran  away,
on  that  dusty  road  with  grace.

You  couldn’t  JUST  love….
and  LOVE  without  PAIN?
Why  would  you  not  prefer,
sunshine  over  rain?

Well,
I  believe  in  survival…
come  what  may.

I  hope  you  understand,
one  day.
