THE STORY IN MY HEAD(Sounds Of Silence)

Would I have had it any better in life?

Why would it be me?

Why would he hurt me?

He is my Father


Why would he get closer to me?

Why would he unbutton me and tell me not to shout?

and why did I not?

Why did I not tell Mom?


That her husband, my father is not the man he was once

Now, he craves for me, his product,

That he didn't do it just once

but more times that I have even lost count


I am hurt but can only speak to myself

For one word out, is hell

I am fearful not to speak, for he said

DO NOT DARE SAY ANYTHING, or you are gone {dead}


Mom, I am sorry but I each time you inquire,

"Are you feeling fine, Glory?"

I can only say "Yes Ma," a deceiving story;

I can only smile at you


For the man in front

Is not a man

but a beast 

who feastson his own kids.


I fear for my own death to not come at this young age

Perhaps, I can tell only myself this tale

Till when he is of old

and the story can then be told.
