Childhood Explosion

Quite a fright I was

as darkness fell

and my childhood exploded 

 

It was erased from my mind 

as all of it was stolen

and everything felt hopeless

 

We were taken away

as she stayed there

and consumed her drugs

 

Nothing was okay

as I took care of myself

and worked for everything I owned

 

I looked at myself

as tears fell

and the child inside of me dissipated

 

Again, 

   Quite

         a fright

I was

    as my

                  childhood 

exploded. 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
