Life of Sickness

I played catch with my dad once in my life
I was very young playing catch with Dad
they were laughing at me dad and his wife
Dad’s drinking did get mother very mad

after the divorce dad was remarried
he lived in different places down south
Mother wanted those memories buried
Mother did yell and shout with her loud mouth

growing up I did learn sports on my own
living with my sister and my mother
fortunately Bonnie and I have grown
today Bonnie hates her little brother

actually Alanon helped me out
I learn of alcoholism without doubt
