Anthony

Anthony short poem

Photo by Altruisto


Well and the Anthony I knew
was a scared and lost little boy
confused about life and sought
sanctuary by drinking himself out
of reality…well I thought I could
save him but he only ended up
using me so I had to just throw
my arms up and walk away, years
ago saying Anthony, I hope in time
you’ll find something in life that’ll
make you happy, look me up when
you grow up…maybe I should of
stuck around instead of disappearing
like a ghost in the night ‘cuz now
I wonder what ever happened to you
and if you ever learned to love yourself
in this stage of your life, I wonder if
you ever stopped drinking and if you
ever opened up your heart to someone
that makes you feel complete…well
don’t you know I hope so, cuz I’ll never
forget that sad and lost little boy you
used to be, I pray you’re the man now
God meant for you to be…well I wonder
I wonder what ever happened to
Anthony!
