PAD Day 12 - Damage

Beautiful Damage


Too trusting, arms outstretched

I love you as I walk away

You made me yours before I knew you and it wasn’t fair

Circumstances shaped you

A mother who didn’t care

Looked for her next hook-up, her next fix

A father who was as cold as an ice box

And you, still trusting

Still loving

Opening your heart to me

Love and hope on your face

I couldn’t walk far

I turned around and you hugged me,

Damaged goods, but good enough for you.
