The Monster we Become

There was so much 
neglect 
So much abuse 
Becoming a monster too 
was just an excuse 
Cigarette burns on my 
arms and back 
Choked so hard it caused bruises 
Becoming a monster too was 
just an excuse 
Almost beaten to death on 
a daily 
Forced to reproduce 
Becoming a monster too 
was just an excuse 
Dressed in filthy rags 
Forced to ware run down 
shoes 
Becoming a monster too 
was just an excuse 
Living this life made me a 
monster 
I was only ten 
How was I ever supposed to 
prosper?
