So many angry words

Are shouted through tears into

Ears of innocence in miniature mortal,

Through portals, to the core of

Metamorphosing young, warping development,

Predicting perseveration of debasement.

Toxic tyranny begets years of torment…

A son cries in fear

As bellowing frightens and confuses,

And father abuses the one who nurtures,

Who’s the only protection, till she

Needs protecting, not able to shelter

Her young from witnessing ugliness

From growing and learning

What a family is and how it lives

Toxic tyranny begets years of torment…

Teenage boy coercing girl, reliving

Lessons learned in home schooling

From first teacher, man of anger,

Molded in his image, growing to be

Fashioned in father’s form

No escaping prevalent storms within.

Toxic tyranny begets years of torment… 

G. K. Bostic – 5/12/11
