Destruction of an Angel

 

 

I would always thank people for birthday gifts, even if I didn’t want them

I guess I didn’t realize that meant it should happen with life as well

Life hasn’t been easy, but there have been good times too

I thank those who have given me wonderful memories

However I would like to thank the people who have put me through hell

 

To the 2010 bottle of wine that raised me

Thank you for teaching me to cheat on my future spouse

We all know that it’s their fault you messed up

Thank you for teaching me to abandon any kids I might have

I now know that it’s ok to tear their families apart and rip their hearts out

I know it’s ok to ruin their lives with broken homes and emotional distance

Thank you for hating me when I can’t stop loving you, my own father

 

To the church leader my parents called “friend”

That little girl you were trying to protect is dead

Murdered by your hands, not the by boy she loved

The moment she died, a monster took over, blackening what was left of her

Kept her shell going when you left her bleeding

Kept her going until an angel saved her, but it was too late

Too late to restore the little girl to what she should be

Thank you for not realizing that the monster you created

Is me
