Forgotten and Replaced

 

screaming

The cry of a child in the rain

Suite cases, broken glass

“Daddy don’t go”

Just the beginning

This pain no one could surpass

 

Emptiness left

Abandonment sets in

He’s never felt so alone

An empty ice box within

 

Birthday parties

Everyone else shows

He still hopes and looks around

But all he sees his faceless shadows

 

The one person he wants

He’s found a better life

This child doesn’t know

That his days will be full of strife

 

The days go on

And this boy gets mad

What the hell did he do

To deserve to be left by his dad?

 

The grandfather not around

He has his first kid

His anger takes a hold of him

He looks at his baby, he could never do what his father did

 

He’s going to find him

He wants the answers

It’s been eating away at him

Like an uncontrolled cancer

 

He pulls up to his dad’s house

Lights off, everyone’s asleep

He pulls the cold metal out of his jacket

His anger at an all-time extreme

 

He breaks the glass

Enters the room

Puts the gun to his dad’s chest

Pulls the trigger – Boom

 

The cops handcuff him and are taking him away

Rescue workers upstairs

It doesn’t look good they say

He tells himself he doesn’t care

 

What he doesn’t know is his father had another son

He can see this little boy distraught and alone

He stands in the rain, screaming something he can’t hear

All he’s holding is a teddy bear and the phone

 

The cry of a child in the rain

Suite cases, broken glass

“Daddy don’t go”

Just the beginning

This pain no one could surpass
