EULOGY (poem)

Daddy…

You stand accused
Of drunk and disorderly behaviour

You stand accused
Of beating the woman you loved

You stand accused
Of the murder of my unborn sister

You stand accused
Of saying all those nasty things to mummy

You stand accused
Of hurting me with all the bad words

You stand accused
Of giving your love to another woman

You stand accused
Of abandoning me when I was small

You stand accused
Of letting me drink when I was young

You stand accused
Of letting me grow up to be as I am

You stand accused
Of teaching me how to beat my women

You stand accused
Of teaching me how children should be beaten

You stand accused
Of letting me hate myself for I’ve become you

You stand accused
Of the murder of your unborn granddaughter

You stand accused
Of putting me in this dark cell

For all that you stand accused!
I love you and I hate you
May your soul rest in peace.

-S
