Thomas Swatek


You brought me into the world

I’m grateful for that

You were not very good parents

I accuse you of that

You passed on your parents’ problems to me

I forgive you for that

You treated my children as you did me

I reject you for that

You have made our family nonexistent

I disown you for that

You stick to your religion yet you are lost

I curse you for that

You did the best you could with what you had

I love you for that

You leave me with the responsibility to break the chain

I will do just that
