    When mom and dad were together
    Things were full of peace
    With special birthday presents
    Coming for my brothers and me
    A father with intuition
    Was very nice indeed
    To us he was a father
    My siblings also agreed
    Mom started doing drugs
    Arguing started to rise
    When separation came into the picture
    My siblings and I cried
    But father still managed
    To see his adorable kids
    After too long
    We haven`t seen him
    Because my mother chose to forbid

    Decided to choose another boyfriend
    Refusing to mention his name
    What this pedophilic bastard
    Done was a shame
    Disrespects my mother
    And breaking expensive things
    Fear has entered our household
    Due to his unpredictable mood swings
    Got fired from a dumpy restaurant
    Mom was still employed
    When she works during the night
    My first thought was `Oh Boy`
    3:00 am the man would
    beat us while he could
    For not drinking liquor
    That didn`t taste too good

    Enjoys hitting my brother
    Knowing that it will hurt
    This household was so flip side
    That things started to get worse
    Breaking every regulations
    When it is not his house
    Goes to jail for one day
    Come back home deciding to act out

    In October `91
    On a cold Tuesday night
    I came home from Bible Study
    Having a premonition
    That something is not right
    Knocked on the door 4 times at least
    He said, "You don`t live here"
    So I involved the police
    They came to the rescue
    By busting down the door
    And after that we did not
    see that so and so anymore
    We were turned to DFS custody
    As sorry as they are
    My older brother in group homes
    Living way too far

    Bouncing from foster home to the next
    Was not all that fun
    Betrayal took place all these years
    Asking myself,
    "Why do I have to be the one?"
    Excluded out of enjoyment
    Has taken over my life
    That my only alternative
    Which no one can take away
    from me
    is the expertise to write.

    this is a sad piece...and what you have described is a situation which no child should have to suffer through....

    it is a good thing though, that you can write, simply, and by telling it like it is without letting the anger and hatred for this man overcome you...your words can have the power to heal you....

    welcome :)

    "You Are Blessed"

    I was right there with you and I felt every blow and pain out of every bad thing does come a good, sometime its not seen right away but God is always good. keep your head up and continue to use the gift you were given it just might help some one else lost to reveal the forbidden. Be blessed
