Image for the poem Abandoned


From a boy to a man
in a single day †  
Now you say  
you don't want to stay
You colour your version
of what happened back then †  
You abandoned me
you are about to do it again †  
† †
Brothers and sisters
left with a hole †  
That can only be filled
with the light of your soul
Your struggle will end
not on this day †  
What makes you think god
won't turn you away? †  
† †
Failure is surrender
it leaves you weak † †
Death will not give you
the salvation you seek
You can Stay and fight
anyone can run †  
Clean up your mess
your damage undone †  
† †
I can give you so many reasons
you need to be here †  
So many reasons
not to lose to your fear
Why cant you see
it's not just your life? †  
So much will be lost
A mother, my wife †  
† †
You leave all your kin
an incomplete heart †  
The blame and the guilt
sure to tear us apart
Maybe you will come back
as somebody free †  
A stranger in the park
that won't recognise me.
