Disrespect is all you know

No other emotion

Are you able to

Show

Lost are your feelings

For those that

Did help you

Grow

Yours are the issues

And have been

So

For many a year

Washed out in tears

Forgotten are those

Who carried you

And eased your

Fears

Lost are those times

Your hand was held

For your mind has

No order

If only the pain were

Washed away

With the falling of

Tears

But survivors do stand

For testimony of

A willingness to

Overcome

For the loss of those

Unfortunate ones

To whom addictions over run

Left with empty arms

And memories

Of this past and things that were

Done

Drowned out by further sorrow

As this is a daughter or son
