Some are born into a house
With no love.
Some learn quickly how to
Push when they shove.

Some are born with a
Silver spoon in hand.
Some live off the
Fat of the land.

Some are emotionally stunted,
A tormented soul.
Some can buy their way
Out of the hole.

Some are physically
Some are forever

Some survive the
Sexual assault.
We all know who
Is at fault.

Some never get
A fair shake.
Some are nuttier
Then a fruitcake.

Some can process and
Move forward.
Some can stay
Forever tortured.

Some learn to deal
With the pain.
Some border on
The insane.

Some are lucky they
Grow and bloom.
Some feel the Presence
Of an impending doom.
