Ruined At Birth

By A.G.

Ruined

    From the day I was born

                             To walk, running across the street

                        To the sound of my name being called

Almost got hit by the 96 bus

Ruined

     From the day I could talk

              Scared to ask questions

         Because I didn’t want to feel

    The belt against my butt

Ruined

    From the first day I cried

    But no one cared

So I wished I was dead

Ruined

               From this day on no longer weak

                      But strong, mature and ready

    To be a changed man and

                   Not that immature little boy

Born Ruined

  1. Knowing where you came from can only help get you where you are going. A person’s past can’t define them forever.

  2. God speed my man … may every day be a WONDERFUL 1st day of the rest of your life!!
