A New Bottle

Filed under: Living a Healthy Lifestyle — by Ponder This @ 9:28

How much of my life were you around.
There were no good mornings,
Nurturing hugs, or words of comfort,
But you had a new bottle.

I wasn’t daddy’s little girl,
I was just a person taking up space.
My clothes were hand-me-downs,
But you had a new bottle.

Dinner Time wasn’t a family gathering,
You were usually drunk and threw your food on the ceiling.
Mom struggled to put food on the table,
But you had a new bottle.

At nights when all should be quite,
The monsters would steal my peace,
I cried myself to sleep.
But you had a new bottle.
