An Emotional Teenager
The needle prickling begings of fear,
As punishment of things not done
at their hands.
Mistaken for the belief that their past
horrifying deeds should
be held against them.
Intoxicated parents not caring what their offsrpings do,
Until the crime is brought before them
then they are punished sevenfold by abuse and
other dangerous means their intoxicated parents can think up.
It is held against them and sometimes its leads to sucicide,
unless the parents can gather the helpful resources
they need to be better parents.
