…And Cried
By: Shawn Petrie (10-23-1996)

I was born
But I don’t know why
Looking back
Just makes me cry

My father had his problems
Made some bad choices
He lost it all
Doesn’t want any of it back

He once told me
I was no good
I just looked in to his eyes
He made me so angry but that is all behind me

My mother was clean
Thrown into the mix
Married my father
Who played deceiving tricks

She once told me
I can’t take anymore
I just looked into her eyes
…And Cried

I love my mother
I think I do my dad
But sometimes I think that its because
He makes me feel so sad

I try not to dig too deep into my past
I won’t let the pain stay for too long
I pack it away back where it belongs
And cry until the memory is gone
