Treasure Island

Hurts the Most


so she told you she's having your baby
but that she really isn't too sure
don't want to grow fast and mature
what she decided was done very poor-ly
not a problem she said to the father-to-be
well let me tell you that it is not easy
neither of the two stopped to consider
that once the baby was to be delivered
how it would affect the whole mentality
I don't think they care to know
How bruised this baby will grow
just knowing the shocking revelation of being forsakened
it's difficult to handle the temptation to keep from breaken
because growing up you didn't understand
why you weren't quite given that chance
when your mother carried you for months
and didn't really care to be apart of your life
or even take on the responsibility
Now you see yourself in a situation that looks a little better
but no one seems to notice just what you're dealing with
A house is not a home when there's no one there to hear your cries
to help when your heart is full of gloom
and you don't like to feel like you're alone
but you must deal with the pain all on your own

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
