Heart Quakes

Heart Quakes

Seems my life has to restart
Yet again I have lost my heart
Consumed by repeated mistakes
Tearing apart my home like earth quakes

I have few treasures remaining
This is find mildly irritating
Though the true shame
Is a son shouldering the blame

Repeating this curse will not occur
For future and past have lost their allure
Now I just exist to resist
The desire to form a fist

To bring myself to refrain from war
As rage swells in my core
Rising faster than it will disperse
I fear it will attract my hearse

For a battle will only kill
My son’s sense of thrill
Force him to grow up too fast
Then he also will hate the past

Though he will resent me
If I just leave it be
The question is how much rage
Will each path put in his cage

Wage war or be defeated
Either way he is cheated
Of all he could have
And he will be in halve
