The Entitled Song by Charl Landsberg

Charl Landsberg 9 October 2013 a poem a day challenge, poetry Comments Off on The Entitled Song by Charl Landsberg
My scars remain, the wounds the same
And rolled together with my shame
Already broken, lost, and lame
And then you sauntered by

Your joke, expense had at my name
Your voice to damn mine as you claim
To burden my life with your blame
So you can saunter by

You shed no blood, you cut no skin
For you it’s all about the win
You never think, you never feel
You cannot know how this is real

I’m not a dog that you can tame
You’re only in this for the game
I’m not your load-bearing frame
So you can saunter by
