I used to have a dad- K. B

I used to have a dad.

 

 

I used to be cherished
And fostered.

The doctor
Looked me
Squarely
In the eye
Then insulted
Me,

The same
Holyness
You carry
Around

In the morning
Glow.

Poor wretch,
The whip
Left its
Mark.

I used to have
A Dad,
Strong
And caring.

Then they told
Me,
This world
Is unforgiving,
Walk or die.

Medication,
You have to
Pay the bill,
Doctors
Too.

I used to have
A Dad,
Strong
And caring.

I used to have
A God,
Kind
And Benevolent,
But nothing
Stands in
The way
Of suffering.

I used
To be with
A woman,
But with
Time,
She became
Less and less
Beautiful.

I used to be
At peace,
But the world’s
Order,
The world’s
Command
Is to harass
People
From everywhere.

And all those enchantments?

Brief seasons,
All given,
Nothing
Taken.

I used
To have
A Dad,
Strong
And
Caring.

Then they
Told me
To grow up.

Nothing stands
In the way
Of sufferring,
Nor caress
Nor diapers.

I used to have
A God,
Kind and
Benevolent.

I used
To be fit,
Stride
With pride,
But even
That was taken
Away.

I used to sing,
I used to heal,
I used to make
Love,

Truth is,
Haven’t kissed
In a while,
Despite
All the gifts,
No one’s there
To protect me,
From anything,
From myself.

I used to be
Cherished,
But since
The light
Grew inside,
I have become
A hobo
With no family,
No belief,

Despite all
The gifts
Of nature.

Wilderness
Awaits me,
At the darkest
Hour,
There is no hope.

Suck me baby,
Then throw me
Away,
Take me to the doc,
Daddy ,
Then make me pay
The bill.

Pray, my creature,
Then open hell
Under my feet.

Unbolt me,
Nurse,
My eyes
Are shivering,
Losing sight.

Help me friend,
Yes I will,
Then you disappear.
