My Dad

It never quits
My dad's h i t s
I see myself in the mirror
And I am to become
But I just go numb
It hurts to see
What all he has done to me
It never fails
When he hears me wail
It never quits
My dad's h i t s

    Unbelievably powerful and amazing. It's too bad that you have to go through that. My father is an alcoholic and is very abusive emotionally...and at one time physically. So I know where you're coming from.

    So sad Alexz. It is a very emotional write here. I'm sorry you have to deal with this terrible thing My dad hit me too when I was young. He used it as a punishment but he was very harsh and verbally abusive too. The first time he hit me after I turned 18 I had him arrested. He never hit me again. I've had a lot of counseling as an adult because of this and a lot of other mistreatment and abuse from quite a few people. Confide in someone you can trust to help keep you safe. Love Rbin

    I'm not mad at you, just the situation, a father should never do that to their child. <3 ~Michaela~

    Tell someone,,if they don't listen tell someone else. I know this is awful but sometimes if you have a mark authorities will pay more attention but don't risk your life. TELL
