I still hear the yelling
The screaming
Caused by a thousand lies
I remember the crying
The feeling
Of always seeing dark skies
I remember the smell of hatred under my nose
The love did not last any way the wind blows
I tasted pain that came from a powerful word
Where heart ache and sadness was all that was heard
I have seen it haunt three people forever
Those people are me, my mom, and my brother
No one can understand the pain that was had
From a man my brother and I used to call

There are no words of consolement to offer other then you have become a great man despite the past you have. You are a good friend, and a marvelous poet. This is a very powerful piece. I loved it.

Love this. Knowing you as a little boy, and what you have endured without a father, I am very proud of you, your brother and your Mom. Great Work Spence!
