I was just a baby in a broken home, I was to young to be on my own, I had an older brother and mother and dad, Things didn't seem to be to bad, But daddy left mommy and we're all alone, Mommy was to young to be on her own, So mama went searching for a nice male, She wond up with a baby she named Cordell, so now three kids struggle in a broken home, Cordell is to young to be on his own, many years past with a whole in my heart, daddy had been missing right from the start, so push came to shove, my older brother wanted love, so he found my dad and he moved out, not even considering the many doubts, nearly a year passed and my heart was a wreak, there are two males I'll never forget, eventually I got tired of the ache, I needed the closure for my own sake, I took a large step and ran away, even though they begged me to stay, I moved back in with dad, my life didn't seem to be to bad, a year of happiness and toys, I remember the feelings of joy, the joyful grins that surrounded me then, now seem like a crazy illusion, cause after a year life turned all dark, me, all my brothers moved into a trailer park, My stepmom was angry, I felt like she blamed me, My big brother had built up some hate, It changed his outcome and his fate, I didn't understand what made him so mad, Now I know that it was because of my dad, A punch to the face, That made his heart race, A push or a pinch, Yet I was a snitch, I didn't know he got beat, He was treated like fresh meat, How is that fair, And I wasn't there, My brother didn't like me, Back then I didn't see, So after I found out, I wanted to screem and shout, My brother decided to find my mom, Within a week he was gone, Now I was back to a broken home, I was still to young to be on my own, I missed my brother, I missed my mother, But I was a sister to three little boys, They are everything my pride and joy, So this time I told my self I'd stay put in place, Cause those little boys settled me to a pace, One cold night things just weren't right, This is one night I couldn't fight, My dad was the nightmare that brung me to shame, I felt like i was apart of a sick game, That little night pushed me over the edge, That was the night i wanted to be dead, I had to leave how could i stay, To suffer another day, My own flesh and blood killed my mind, So all this time i had to find, So now that I've found myself I'll tell you who i am, My name is Cynthia and today I'm starting again. -Cynthia Haslop
