Numb

 

Lay her soul to rest

For being naive is dead

Grieve the girl who once was

But don't pity who she is

 

Burn the memories

And entomb them in the wall

Next to her father's ashes

Ashes,  Ashes we all fall down

But drugs and liquor

Bring death quicker

How do you tell a 2-year-old

Daddy is in Heaven?

 

"Whisky lullaby...

Big girls don't cry

They suck it up and survive

Play with your toys now."

 

"Whisky lullaby...

Big girls don't cry

They suck it up and survive

Play with your toys now."

 

Lay her soul to rest

For innocence is dead

Grieve the girl who once was

But don't pity who she is

 

Cover the memories

Along with the bruises

Her uncle's belt a whip

He uses after drinking

Legs made purple and blue

Next day he had no clue

How do you tell a 5-year-old

About drunken rage?


"Whisky lullaby...

Big girls don't cry

They suck it up and survive

Play with your toys now."


 


"Whisky lullaby...

Big girls don't cry

They suck it up and survive

Play with your toys now."


 Lay her soul to rest

For childhood is dead

Grieve the girl who once was

But don't pity who she is


 Bury the memories

Deep in the trash

With the rest of the filth He gave

Wash away His touch


And somehow forget

Move on with no regret

How do you tell an 8-year-old

The word molestation?


 "Whisky Lullaby...

Big girls don't cry

They suck it up and survive

Play with your toys now."


"Whisky Lullaby...

Big girls don't cry

They suck it up and survive

Play with your toys now."


 


...Lay my soul to rest

For the girl I was is dead

Grieve who I once was

But don't pity who I am...

Losting childhood and get to adulthood . Can be sometimes very cruel. You describe what almost everybody have done. Strong words with strong meaning. Nice structure of bulding poem. I like it.
