Gone to often
Left to fast
Missed much living
I don’t even know you dad

Loved so much
Feel so empty
All grown up
I don’t even know you dad

Cry much tears
Lost in lies
Childhood gone
I don’t even know you dad

Mistake made many times
Repeated often
Fighting back
That’s a first dad

Blame it all on you
Hate so much
Fighting for your life…
I just don’t know dad

Taking that step
Yes I believe in you
Mistake will be forgiven
I want to know you dad

Tears done falling
Slowly wiping my eyes
Holding your hand
Dad it will be all right

Things have happen
Things have gone
I’m ready for a dad
Are you ready to be one?

    Taina - This poem struck home with me - my oldest daughter used the inmate tracking system to find me so she could write - I've been clean for 7 years and we have a good relationship now - congrats on being featured - mj
