A Poet’s Story

My heart broke as I listened to Chuck’s story

His childhood with his father was the stuff of tragedies

He recounted being beaten frequently, often over the smallest of things

It made him a hard man he admitted honestly, but later in life he’d bleed all that residual pain into poetry

Seems that was the best way he knew to set it free
