1. 1

Because of his parents who met at an AA meeting 

Whose gene pools spelled only disaster.

Because of the cancer that did not take him as a child 

That left not gratitude but rumbling fault lines of self hatred and doubt.

Because of the ever merciless God his grandmother so adamantly preached about  

Who never once graced him with His compassion.

Because of his father who forged the path

Ending his own life with a bottle of pills.

Because of the brother who escaped, 

Now a respected Seabee off to serve his country.

 

He lays in torment

Body a leaf in a hurricane 

Mind on fire

The needle the only door to his peace

Toxins the solitary cure to his unrest 

Shoot up

And 

Forget.
