The Other Path

A little broken, a little fixed, my devilish ways has me mixed, came from a broken home parents split apart, us kids just stuck with a broken heart. Steadily move from place to place, can’t keep friends an stay somewhere long enough to find real, ask god many times what is the deal, my emotions rumble of all that I feel watch my parents pop pill after pill, crack pipes an bottles found all threw the house left in sight, why is this my battle I didn’t ask to fight? Broken as a small child, but as adult I refuse the wild, changed the repeat of how I grew up no cycle here to stay, I choose better life an by the right way. My darkened shadow of my past taught me many things the true life lessons of all that it brings, I use all the hardship to create myself better, can’t be my parents with only communication is a letter. I’ll be all that I ever dreamed about, laugh at you ones that only gave me doubt, free land of adult hood a fresh new start, watch my outcome as I divide far apart.
