Harsh Words Of A Father

A father's words
His behavior
His temperament
Thinking of his child
As worthlessness
That child is left with nothing
But shame

Those actions, those words
Are a million times more potent
Than any venom on this earth
It kills his soul
Destroys his emotions
Makes him dull and senseless

As he grows up
He begins to understand
Meaning behind every word

Hatred takes over his heart
Emotions are chared
As he takes on the path
Of self-destruction,
living life on the edge

Something quietly burns within him
And engulfs the rest of his life
Every night!

Nothing but shame; with the muse of parenting. Thanks for sharing.
Those actions, those words Are million times more potent Than any venom on this earth It kills his soul Destroys his emotions Makes him dull and senseless... so true if the father is not good the effect of it remains your whole life..... leads to hatred, depression, fear. very nice poem. thank you dear poet. tony
