Another older poem, I wrote this one in 2015. It is based on a person I once met.

He had a hard life. No-good parents. 

In and out of foster homes. 

In the bad crowd. 


At a young age, 

he learned that he could only trust himself. 

He lost a lot. 


Now he's struggling. 

Trying to put his life together, 

but nothing's going the way he wants. 


His only friend is the half-empty bottle in his hand. 

He's a broken soul. 

But he is beautiful. 


He hates when people are treated wrong,

because he knows. 


He understands what it's like. 


On the outside, you know that he's been through it. 

His demeanor says it all. 


But when you take a look at the lyrics written in his heart and soul, 

you find the pure beauty of who he is, 

and you wonder, how to put him into a song.
