  • Absolution

    Like a minnow in an ocean
    Never fully understanding
    Fear the child’s notion
    Of a fathers voice commanding

    No sense of right or wrong
    Corruption a pulling force
    Leather to flesh the nightly song
    Played by a father with no remorse

    No explanations ever expressed
    A simple release of hostility
    From a father completely stressed
    Casting shadows of debility

    Knowing and understanding
    Escape the childs thought
    Black and blue his branding
    Redemption is all he sought

    Into manhood he is thrust
    With only an understanding of violence
    To no one he will trust
    To the grave he will bare his silence

    Now becomes his chance
    Student becomes the teacher
    Preparing for the destructive dance
    Give birth now to his fathers creature

    A moment frozen in time
    Feeling like an eternity
    What a fear filled existence
    To pass to his own posterity

    As his own eyes gaze back at him
    From a child his one true love
    Flashes of a childhood so grim
    His one chance to rise above

    Everything has changed
    In a world not black and white
    An understanding of a path deranged
    His own path he can write

    He knew now the abuse he had endured
    Taught violence the solution
    A broken man matured
    Offers his own child absolution
