Chemical Poison

Force fed dish soap and comet
until I vomit for a childish comment 
Lysol with a knife to my throat
in the group home that day I made a promise
I will no longer provoke 
to do the right thing so I dont have to choke
on any more chemicals forced down my throat
I really wish the world knew what American abuse is
it's system kids reaching out instead I hear a bunch of excuses
backing up the useless 
but nothing can excuse this
beat the crap out of me than you cry 
when you did not have to do this
every day as a child I wanted to die 
at the time there was much more to live for but I was clueless 
name brand shoe less 
picked on and beat up covered in bruises
asked Mom and Dad why whyyyyyyyyyyyy did you do this
from foster homes to group homes
they were all ran the same like clones 
no adult deep down around even cared
because if they did this abuse I went through 
some of it I would of been spared 
even though my Mom is gone I still live in fear
and every day goes by its a little more unclear.    -TA
