The Oath
By AJ Peaslee.2001

I should want to be you,
And try to follow in your footsteps
To be a man greater than you.

But instead I hate that word,
Dad has no meaning for me
And you can rest assured
That I will never be like you.

You struck my mother,
Slammed your fist against her.
You even attacked my brother.

I swear to you,
That I will never sink to your level,
If only you knew,
How much I hate you.
