Pain Stain

Pain Stain
I thought I’d run away
Left scenes in the past
I thought I would no more see
The struggle
Of the two that bore me
Wrestle to the floor angered
A party drunk to nuts
Brewing hatred
Battery business I can no more bare
I want to run away
Look for my God
And cry to Him tall
For this pain
Now a stubborn stain

I’ve seen selfishness
Thrive shamelessly
To break
The beauty of a family
I have cried my tears out
Just because money caused a bout
Left with no feelings
No heart
No conscience
No fear
But to God I cry

My night is long
I want to run away
Away from the feasting fists
The adult embarrassment
The stain that is my pain 
Like I want to sleep
Never to wake up again
I don’t know what love is yet
Nobody taught me
Mama’s cry haunts deep
