Injustice

There are so many things

I wish I could say but I can’t

so I’m forced to type them

and confine all my kind thoughts

to a 13 by 8 inch screen

for just a few dozen people

to glance upon.

Oh, what a shame that is.

Because how do I portray to the world

the light that is emitted each time you smile?

Or the way the world grows brighter

with every one of your laughs?

Or that life with you introduces

more colors that the human mind

can comprehend?

It’s simple.

I can’t

and what an injustice that is.

 

The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far from the Tree

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised

to discover your father is disgusting,

just like you.

After all, what they say is true:

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

He’s done horrible, unspeakable things

to an innocent young girl,

just like you.

He took something from her

that you took from me ‘

that wasn’t for either of you to take.

You are both crooked and disturbed.

You both deserve to rot in hell

for the crimes you’ve committed.

It makes me sick to my stomach

to remember and know the things you do

and think you can get away with.

This world is an awful place,

not just because of the lack of justice

but because it is populated with people like you.
