I’ll never not hate you again. Because I loved you. Maybe not first, but as soon as I could. But when I loved you, you hated me. You hated what you thought I’d become. You hated the thought that I’d become more than you. Now I hate you too. Because you broke me. You broke me in half. You broke me in two. You broke me in, too. Into this world of hate, lies, love, and condemnation. Now you can’t condemn me without condemning you. And you can’t even look at me without hating you. I can look at me now and see what I’m becoming. Still broken in two by all the hatred you infused. Half boy half man, and both hate you. The difference is, now I can do what you never could. I can become even more than what you thought I would. A real man with a voice not dumbing down to bums. And I can even hate you without fear of bad conscience. Cause my conscience is clear and yours is cloudy after all you have done. Knowing it was you where all of this hatred came from. I’ll never forget you or the way you taught me to become a “man”. And if the only way to win is forgive you and forget your sins, I’ll find solace in this and the fine point of my pen. Because you broke me I’m free. And free to never not hate you again.
Will you just Stay?
Even when the path ahead looks a little bleak
Even when we have a fight, say you’ll still speak
Speak to my heart with your words, my soul with your passion, and speak to my mind with your own
Promise me you’re here to Stay and you won’t ever leave me alone
Even if I snore sometimes, or pass gas in my sleep
Even when I’m moody and sound angry when I speak
Even when I get sick and need you to Stay with me
Even when I’ve lost myself, help me to get back to our beat
When I yell for no rhyme or reason, just hold me close to soothe my soul
All I really want to know is if you’ll be with me through the cold
When I cry myself to sleep some nights, don’t turn the other way
Wrap your arms around me to take the pain away
When our children get here and sometimes we disagree,
Tell me it’s not about you or me, we’ve got to do what’s best for our family
When the world is against me, please Stay by my side
Remind me that you’re not leaving, and you’re here to ride or die
When we’re old and gray and wrinkly too
Say you’ll still love me the way that I love you.
