YOU DIDN’T LISTEN,
I’m sorry I couldn’t get you to listen, you didn’t want to hear,
So sorry when I tried to explain, you responded with a hand to my face.
I couldn’t quite understand when you asked a question of me,
I had no time to finish with an answer, to attack was all you could understand.
You didn’t listen, or understand, because you showed no care, what a man,
I was not a child of perfection, I’m sorry you had to teach me with pain.
Never would you believe in me whether right or wrong,
I saw the anger on your face, did the raising of your hand make you feel strong.
You had no right, did you even think, I was just a kid, you were supposed to be a man,
I’m sorry you had your problem, do you remember being a boy,
Did your dad use a belt like you, well Mr. I’ll always remember your name.
