he feels his head pounding like a hammer
as he wakes up lying on the curb agian
the day before only in quick little flashbacks
playing over and over in the back of his head
a teenager who feels the wieght of the world
a boy who never got the chance to be a kid
has caved in and drinks his life away.
 
the yelling, the pain, and the days walking alone
his life as a five year old punching bag, the past
the bullies, the beatings, and being hurt at home
his life as a scared little brown haired boy, is over
the maryjane is his pocket, the bottle in his hand
his life as a broken down addict, has just begun.
 
he feels nothing taking another drink again
as he sees his life now and what it couldve been
the days he used to pull the covers over his head
the questions why playing over and over agian
a twenty year old man who looks like forty three
a thirteen year old boy who first fell into the trap
had broken down and ruined his destany.
 
the yelling, the pain, and the days walking alone
his life as a five year old punching bag, the past
the bullies, the beatings, and being hurt at home
his life as a scared little brown haired boy, is over
the maryjane in his pocket, the bottle in his hand
his life as a beaten down addict, a full grown man.
