Scum (poem)


You think you are so clever

You think no one would know

How could you rob my innocence

How could you pain me so

I may be worn and weary

But this temple is mine

I may be young and naive

But I know of your kind

They prey on the forlorn

The mild and the weak

They prey on the troubled

The child and the meek

I did not deserve that

I now know this is true

No one deserves that

Not even a scum like you

But I learn of forgiveness

And serene healing too

I no longer despise you

And drown in bitter booze

Very powerful emotions and verse, Empath.

It reminds me a lot of Sylvia Plath's "Daddy".
