    He awoke with a start
    On that cold summer night
    A cool salty sweat covering his body
    He had had this dream before
    Nightmares of his childhood
    Back when he was young
    The memories of the nights
    Spent in the basement
    With his parents beating him
    Flashed in his mind
    Next came the dark days
    When his mother and father aped him
    Their words still rang clear
    From that day in first grade
    "You will never amount to anything"
    If only they could see him now
    With a nice house, respectful job
    And a loving family
    Sadness filled his heart
    As he realized their desperate struggle
