My Life

Life was hard growing up
Observing my dad take drugs
Cheat on my mom
Always thinking to myself
Do I stay or do I run?
Do I talk or stay silent?
Do I bow down or get violent?
I knew it wasn't my place to meet head-on with him
I stood up toe to toe
Taking blow for blow
Never backing down
Understanding my family needed me now
They needed strength
I gave them power
They needed happiness
I gave them laughter
They needed a family
I brought them together.
