All You Ever Had

Here comes that hurt little girl inside you

She’ll make you and I so sad

You say the pain is old but it feels so new

You cling to it like it’s all you ever had,

 

I wondered what it takes to make you happy

Some people just don’t have what it takes

That little girl inside you won’t let you be free

Everyone everywhere makes mistakes,

 

Just when you thought you might get over it

Here comes another storm cloud just ahead

The hurt little girl inside you sits where you sit

The guy who broke your heart was it Bill or Ted?

 

Tell you the worst about your hurt little girl

She takes another victim down along with her

You smashed your happiness just like a fragile pearl

You doomed us both that’s for sure,

 

Here comes that hurt little girl inside you

She’ll make you and I so sad

You say the pain is old but it feels so new

You cling to it like it’s all you ever had,

 

Just when I thought I really knew you

You wounded me like all those guilty ones

And just like knowing your eyes were never blue

Your scorn shined bright like a thousand suns,

 

Who really was the victim who had the fun?

That hurt little girl so deep inside you

Was she ever really on the run?

My father’s dead I’m no longer a son,

 

Why did I ever trust you?

Seems I don’t learn my lessons too well

You’ll always be you there’s nothing I can do

Why do you have to crawl back in your shell?

 

Funny how we create our own living hell

While on that road of good intentions

For some of us time will never tell

There may be lies but no exceptions,

 

On this darkest night in time

We can both talk and try to understand

But this shadow is just not a good sign

It’s just like water passing through your hands,

 

Here comes that hurt little girl inside you

She’ll make you and I so sad

You say the pain is old but it feels so new

You cling to it like it’s all you ever had.

J. P Hart there is no justice in a world of men and laws made by men or women. We are the creator's imperfect likenesses doomed to punish each other. That poem did not come from hatred only acceptance.

Sir, may your meniscus tear be only of knee

Well I guess your subtle yet detectable mockery should not be ignored but in my football playing days I never received an ACL injury of the knee unfortunately for you. Sadly my son Dad for  team that went undefeated for 2 years but lost in the state playoffs. Biggest thrill I ever got watching his team as I drove all over the state to catch his games, better than the Superbowl watching these kids play for the love of the sport with everything they have as opposed to the primmadonas of today's NFL, millionaires who show disrespect for a nation that they could never achieve such fortune and fame anywhere else in the world for what they do and yet their childish PC ignorance allows them to piss off the fans who have given them their venue.
