Do you regret what you did,
when we were still children?

Do you regret telling us
what a wonderful child you were?
How you were never late to anything
and always got full marks;
We are failures in comparison.

Do you regret shouting at us
when we had done something wrong?
I can no longer respond
to defend myself;
I simply freeze in fear.

Do you regret hitting me
so hard that I was bruised?
You taught me to deserve pain
should I ever harm another;
I learnt to hurt myself.

Do you regret telling us
that our tantrums looked silly?
I still feel pathetic and
cannot cry in public;
The dread of being mocked.

Do you remember hitting us
with your favourite wooden spoon?
You lacked the authority
to subdue when argued with;
We learnt to fear instead.

Do you regret telling me
that we would achieve the best?
Perfection was never an option
with the hellfire that we rode;
I fell from your plinth long ago.

Do you regret what you did
when we were still children?
I do not think you meant
the misery that you caused,
But your actions marred us all the same.
There's no way that I can go home now. Told my Mum that I was not coming back, and that I will only be returning to pick up my stuff.

Going in to the counsel to declare myself homeless tomorrow, and beg for somewhere to live. Thankfully found some friends who are willing to put me up until then.

Fun, fun, fun!

Yeah... Even running isn't all it's cracked up to be. I now have no-one. It's an improvement on before, but it's tough being all alone in the world.
