I was robbed from my childhood
Forced to grow up too soon
My eyes saw things eyes shouldn't see
Exposed to cruelty where my innocence became lost.
All because of you.

My life was forever changed,
After what I faced during those dark years.
Never could I get my childhood back,
At least not the way it counted.
All because of you.

Now I'm sitting here,
Staining paper with my words
With the past that haunts me.
Inevitable it is to stop the tears from following the same path.
All because of you.

I do not resent you,
But I can't love you the way I should.
I love you as God has called me to love everyone but nothing more.
Remember the reason for all this mess is
All because of you.

The author's comments:

This is a piece inspired by someone in my life who screwed up. They made mistakes that they can never repair. The mistakes have made a great impact in my life and perhaps may be the reason I come to rely on writing. Although the mistakes hurt me, I'm thankful for them because without them I wouldn't be who I am today.
