"We're all mad here." -Alice in Wonderland


Everyday I relive the pain
The pain I felt
The pain you felt
I relive the pain I caused

The door opens
I know it is happening again
I repeat the same motions
It is about to begin

I start with Dad
He asks me how I’m doing
Fine was the only answer I had
Why is he still pursuing

I move on to you
Mom, you asked me what I was doing
As if you had no clue
Why am I still pursuing

I stabbed my father
I bashed my mother’s head in
What made me commit this slaughter
I’m paying for my sin

Everyday I relive the pain
The pain I felt
The pain you felt
I relive the pain I caused


The author's comments:

Just so nobody starts to worry about the subject matter of this piece, I want to preface that it is based from a character's point of view from a movie by the same title.
