Taken

Stripped away from your home
Your family you have forsaken
You left me all alone 

I pleaded for you to stop!
Continue legitimately! 
You couldn't, you were on top.
You loved your profession intimately,
Sometimes more than your own family.
Now forced to be a man,
I must conquer this insanity.
Yet I have no specific plan.


You plead with the judge for amnesty 
“The crimes involve no violence” 
He is not convinced 
All he provided was his absolute silence
He proclaims “No bail!”
You are to be in jail
Sleep in a cell 
With only unfamiliar male


These god forsaken walls
You wish you could scale
You get harassed in the stalls
Although, in your mental you thrive


Your only feeling of being alive
Is when you see the sun surpass the hills
Your eyes see this through the fracture 
In the flimsy structure 


You are deemed an obstructer,
When will you  arrive at my door?
I will never know
But I image you deprived, and poor
I get chills surging through me as I type
Tears fill my soulless eyes
Soulless due to the one that was taken from me
My father; the one of eternal lies
