Making a factual statement such as telling me I am for the most part a "pessimistic" person
Why yes, yes I am.
With you knowing me "oh so well" or so your suggesting
with that condescending tone of voice
Let's explore the reasons for my natural pessimistic point of view
Could it be the sexual abuse I experienced from my loving step father?
Or my attempt to bury those memories with all the heroin I could ever get my hands on
No no its most certainly that choice I finally came to
Laying the 12 gauge rifle on my lap
Reliving all the horrors that filled my 21 years of life
Now living with the scars as you know
I can only ever live a life that was given to me with the family that was given to me
Not everyone has two loving parents
Not everyone has a close-kit family.
I am who I am because of these experiences
But they do not control me
They do not hinder my ability to be rational
To think clearly.
