A short outlook on my entire life. Lots of pain.
Real as real gets

The author has placed a warning on this post for language.
These words are as real as real gets in the realist form,
It all started when I came out of the womb and the doctor clipped my umbilical cord,
A psychopathic, sociopath was born,
I was number three of a total of four,
My earliest memory, my mom was on the floor,
Dad was beating her calling her a whore,
It was a violent upbringing so violent I was,
But thanks to my dad I could sure take a punch,
Off and running this was my life,
Now let me explain all the heartache and strife,
Traumatized permanently, yea it scarred me for life,
Witnessing my neighbor murdered with a knife,
I could hear my mom cry every night,
Saying, " he shouldn't have seen that, he's only nine"!
Not knowing that path just created my life.
The more time that passed the more pissed that I got,
With my little young heart decaying with rot,
I was bullied in school, no one would've thought,
And Joe was lucky he didn't get shot,
Because the morning that I stole my father's glock,
Joe didn't come to school, he didn't get popped.
Now all the years that passed they all went slow,
Especially the 5 years I did in the hole,
The sacrifices I made, just to save face,
Molded this man, created today,
I've been through it tons of shit,
Waist to chest high and I ran through it,
I always made it to the other end,
In fact deep in that shit is where I met my best friend,
And just like my brother that died, that I'll never see again,
She's playing with his killer, heroin.
For me to "love" I didn't think it
For a sociopath love is improbable,
So she's really unique, gotta be special,
Quit taking it for granted or I'm grabbing a pistol,
We'll keep repeating this messed up cycle,
You gotta hear these words that I told,
They're as real as real gets in the realist form,
It all started when I came out the womb and the doctor clipped my umbilical cord.
