  1. me myself and i

    me myself and i Account Closed

    Chosen from a home, how lucky was i?
    Not aborted and killed and left to die
    Chosen from a plain room, with many a bed
    Taken home and sheltered, given warmth and well fed

    Why did she choose, not love and hold me tight
    Why did she choose, not to win agaisnt the fight
    Presented by her nanny to her own mum and dad
    She did not know what loving was, that makes me real sad

    Both of them you see, from an old bygone age
    Unable, unwilling, to turn that crisp, new page
    Cold and strict was my life, as a child
    Later on in life, i was bound to go wild

    Mum i forgive you, but wish you had shown me
    Love, hugs and laughter like a proper family
    Though you are dead now, and lie next to your mate
    Remember Mum, i beat him because its never, too, late

    Pete, your poetry is so full of evocative imagery. It's poignant but it gives such insight into you, highlights the strength inside of you that shines through. The pain, yes, but the strength too, and I admire that.

    That is very profound. You can see so much more than the word on the page. :hug:
