I am my father'S son
He was rendered powerless, with seemly no where to go...
He was programed he was worthless, he was going to burn.
The messages instilled in him, lead him to the path of Hell...
He felt loke life had nothing to offer him, so his body he did sell.
His father an alledged player, had many women he to the house at night..
Hia Mother who had been battered, left tired of the fights.
This child was only five years old..
His parents had no time for him, and his emtions ran cold...
He never made friends, as he trusted no one.
He isolated, in his auburn flames of pain, he watched the horrific re-runs.
Swearing to himself he would never be like his parents...
He decided to go to college and become a chemist.
Not having the people skills to make it in the cooporate world...
So he deceides to join the the under ground world.
Mixing chemicals without an excat plan..
This young man, placed his chemicals in his van.
He drove to his fathers house, in the middle of the night..
Around mid-night, he hit the switch and the van did ignite.
Himself and his father, went up in flames beyond our satile lights...
Ironically, in the explosion he and his father died together and the first time they were united.
