A taste of life's pain


A cry echos as a childs first breath is taken in this world

the joy in his mother

the pride in his father

they both have high hopes for a future unknown

months pass

the boy grows

and the man who started his life vanished from the boys life

his mother searches

for one with potential

but one comes, a man raised by the streets, one his mother will love

this second man

the boy called father

as years pass his guardians fight, violence and pain.

The boy notices

and he hides and cries

In these first few years this boy gets a taste of life's pain
