PostSubject: Growing Up In Fear   Mon Jan 08, 2018 3:39 pm

Growing Up in Fear
 
I wish I was adopted 
As my mother was King Kong
And my father wasn’t that strong
And was soon gone
 
Life was very hard 
Growing up in the slums 
Watching every crumb
Though 
I never thought about food
The days were very long 
And lots of adventurous fun
 
Out all the time
Trouble chasing me 
A few of the kids  
Were spoiled rotten
But most were 
Very poor indeed
 
The Catholic church
Had it quirks 
But it never did much to help
Or be there in our misery 
But as a child of the 70s
I can only have my views
Be them large or small
Hurtful or great
Everything came to us late 
 
When I was 12 years old
I started cooking my meals
Pizza chips (fries) and baked beans
Everyday in every way
 
I knew God was real
But I didn’t know how
He was looking out for me
Even when I was in my sins 
Saving me from peadofiles
 
Although I had to suffer 
A lot of abuse 
At home and on the streets 
School was no better place
 
I don’t know how I survived it all
The crimes against me were very strong
I often thought what have I done wrong
To deserve such pain 
To deserve such punishments 
 
Turns out mummy was ill 
In the head 
But we had no idea about that
At the time
Just a single parent family 
Surviving public persecution 
For having no daddy at home
 
Forgive me dear God
Forgive me dear God
I don’t know 
What I’ve done wrong
To deserve such a life full of abuse

Autobiography: Childhood





 
 In memorial to my mother who died age 75 in 2009; I had no knoweldge of my mothers death, I found out by accident in 2012 at the time of Donna Summers death.
I forgive my mother of all the abuse, and my sisters for not informing me of her death.
