~~TW - Child Abuse~~
I learned all I needed about women when I was twelve,
When my own mother left me to fend for myself.
See I was a scrawny annoyance, he was a 300 lb. catch,
And she simply refused to referee such an uneven match.
So she turned her back on me, left me for dead,
And he used me like a punching bag (just not in the head).
I guess she could deny it, if there were no bruises to see,
****, she barely reacted when he almost killed me.
He was jobless and living with us, doing artwork for some bar,
I laughed at his work and the look on his face said I'd gone too far.
He shot up like a flash, I'd never seen a 7-foot redneck move so fast!
He chased me down, grabbed my throat, and said I'd breathed my last.
He lifted me off the floor, and said this life was not to be treasured,
Then punched me in the stomach; Once, Twice, and Thrice for good measure!
His contempt only flourished in sight of the cross at my neck,
So he tore it off and spit on it, he wasn't scared of goin' to heck.
When I was nearly unconscious he finally left me fall,
He kicked me, asked where my God was, and left me gasping in the hall.
When he'd passed out drunk I told my mom what he'd done,
She patted my knee, "Do you expect me to believe that, son?"
"It's such a hard life, being a single mom, I hope you understand.
That's why I'll never forgive you, if you drive away this man."
So yeah, you'll never have trouble convincing me men are crap,
But likewise, I know women are no better, and that is a fact.
