One To Blame


 

innocent

There was a boy

he was eight.

His father showed him

endless hate.

When he was bad, or disobeyed,

a belt or fist was the price

he paid.

 

He thought he did wrong.

That he deserved the pain, but

he didn’t know his father

was the blame.

 

A few years passed, he was ten,

He suffered bruises from end to end.

His father came home, drunk again,

and showed his anger

and suffering with pain.

 

He thought he did wrong,

that he deserved the pain,

but he didn’t know his father

was really to blame.

 

Five more years passed,

His father was accused for

murder of the innocent one.

The boy, on life support,

suffered undying pain.

While his father sat in jail,

suffering no shame.

He sat until he heard

the dreadful news,

that the boy was not strong,

and couldn’t take the pain…

So they took off the support,

and took away the pain.

 

He knew he did wrong,

that the boy deserved no pain,

but he realized too late,

that he was to blame.
