“Genes that don’t Fit”

young kids
barely begun life
yet have “lived” a life
worth forgetting

darkness whispers
in a child’s ear
through pain
through abuse
through abandonment

so they grow up not knowing
what is right
what is good
what is love
and live in fear
of ever receiving
what’s been distorted

never wanting to be married
never wanting to be a parent
never wanting to turn out like “them”
who’ve abused so well

not realizing the darkness
behind it all
blaming Light for not being there
blaming Light for not intervening
forever denying the very Light
which expels the darkness
the very Light
which heals all wounds
the very Light
which reveals true identity
to become who you are
and not what you saw
