Growing up rough!

Pieces

Came up in a world poor and confused
Raised by a drunk and the booze
Dirty plastic spoon in my mouth
5 years old — things were going south

I look back now
And what do I see?
Pieces
Scattered
Tattered
Spread across the years
Floating aimlessly in tears

Fought the good fight as a kid
Took a few swings
then run and hid
Crushed by the American cheat
Started too far back
Suffered shameless defeat

I look back now
And what do I see?
Pieces
Scattered
Tattered
Spread across the years
Floating aimlessly in tears

Grown now, still alive
Somehow
Pieces of my failures sown
So much so
I feel lost, sad and alone

Night comes clear
Deep inside a feeling
Should be fear
But strange
Hope appears
Late in the game
Not too late
Who knew
Heavens gate awaits

I look back now
And what do I see?
Pieces
Scattered
Tattered
Spread across the years
Floating aimlessly in tears
