MrDunnePoetry Posted January 12, 2022 Share Posted January 12, 2022 "Stay Down"Dear God, it's been a while, I don't know what to say/I need to open up my heart, but if I do, they'll lock me awayBut how can they lock me away, for spitting the misery I feel in my heart/When the ones that made me betrayed me, when I was just a baby in the darkFiending for a father figure, and crying for his mother/Wishing they'd love him, but they wished they had anotherSo it hurts me to say this, I've been a cursed seed since day one/I guess I weren't a product of love, I was just what come after a night of funWith nowhere for me to run to lord, no place for me to hide/I'm coming to you asking for help, in the hope I can confideAll of my tears, all of my fears, and all the years that I'm facing/All the tears and years I wasted, now it's prison or probationGot me pacing, constantly hating, on the system that we live in/Cause it's hard playing these cards, when their the wrong cards that they givingBut still I'm never giving up, because I know there's better ways/Still I stay two fingers up, until I see them better days.Copyright 2011 The Elusive Mr Dunne (All rights reserved) https://allpoetry.com/poem/16288102-Stay-Down-by-Mr-dunne-poetry Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
