Secrets unveiled

He stands over the baby’s crib looking down
Waves of emotions try to make him drown
He looks with eyes he thought he could never own
A everlasting us has now been born, he’s no longer alone
He is in love with his child, his seed, his baby
And this is that kind of love that makes grown people act crazy
He misses her, even though he is with her
He leaves just so he can come back to see her
He is head over heels lost in the paradise of parenthood
Never in his life as an emotion, felt so good
His mission is now crystal clear
This feeling has overshadowed everything he ever held dear
All his mistakes were so that he could teach her
All his pain was so that it could help her
His history will clear her futures path
He will help her with everything from boyfriends to math
Days are strung together, to make the sensation of her growing up feel better
Because every day feels better than the one before
And with each thing she learns she craves for more
He is proud to the extent that he is looking down upon stars
He is past cloud nine he is past being fine
He has found meaning
Still thinking he is dreaming because such a beauty
Coming from him has him wondering if this is reality
For it feels like a fantasy
Something so pure came from something so twisted
Chances to clean up, a few, but he missed it
He is addicted to heroine
In a life filled with misery and darkness that was his heroine
But now finally, his sin can be replaced
Because now with the perfect answer he is faced
For a question he has asked his entire life, why am I here
But with the birth of her, it’s erased all of his fear
To hold her, to cherish her, to adore her, to love her
She has to become so much more than what he is
His life in shambles drugs ruined it all
But she, she will never fall
For his arms will be by her side every second of every day
His love will be unconditional regardless of what she might say
No matter how the dark the hole, he will be her light
No matter how wrong she might be, for him she will be right
For he has been naked in the dark and swam in nothing
He has kissed loneliness and drank from the pool of despair
He is blissfully aware that life isn’t fair
But he will give her cards that he was never dealt
He will give her emotions that he has never felt
Affection, pride, the passion to stand up when you fail
The courage to stand tall no matter what storm might hail
For him it’s too late but she still has a chance
She is still able to attend life’s dance
In full attire and glowing like the sun
For her he will no longer run
He will fight his addiction
For her there is no such thing as too big an affliction
The needle will be put to rest, heroine will be kissed farewell
This will simple be a story, he will never tell
For love for your child is something you should never underestimate
And an addict is still a human even though he might reside in a dangerous state
But chances are there to be given
And mistakes are there to be forgiven
We will not clap for the words who’s meaning is mild
We will simply applaud every Father and Child

Ok so I wrote this one for a performance back in the day. It was for a Father and Son theme, and the backdrop of that theme was that the dad was a drug abuser. And with that in mind I wanted to tell the story of a man who found a path of light in the darkness he crept in. This one was a good one … people liked it … are you people? Secrets unveiled isnt the longest piece, nor is it the most complete one, but it darn sure is one that I am glad I wrote. Because with Secrets unveiled I showed to the public that I can write about darn near anything. So Secrets unveiled is more about just a junky finding his way back to sanity, but its also about the Secrets unveiled of a writer who feels like he can do more. So with Secrets unveiled, I am sure you get the viewpoint of me Vino Venitas.

So if you liked Secrets unveiled, I am sure you will like the book as well. And you might consider this book full of  Secrets unveiled … I bare some real emotions in this book.
