God I’m giving up on you


You took my parents away from me
My siblings had no clue
Just a boy lost in misery and hatred
In a boys home all because of you

Are you not the man they taught me?
Who would guide me through?
That stage in life that maketh the man
Where the hell were you?

My kids now suffer for
I know not much of love
All those years I defended you
That Supreme Being from above

Why did you allow that I should grow?
As a young child all alone
When no one even visited me
In a rotten Government home

I never learned to be a Dad
Floundered through and through
Hit the grog and gambled
All because of you

Now I am old and gone
The church and god may be true
But neither ever helped me
God, I’m giving up on you.
