Genetics (Originally Untitled) – Written Thursday 3rd August 2006


as an adult –
with no reason to complain
that is your answer
a lifetime of pain –
of hurt and abuse

no, human beings…
is that what you believe
no free will
and no hand on the wheel
or the way you feel
and the cards that you deal
sad, very sad
who planted that seed
sadder still,
who watered it?

no, you make your own life
you do not get crucified by others
who have abused you
you do not let them win
you are your own person
and you tell all of them
