Daddy

Does it satisfy you seeing
the warm trickle of my tears
flow down my face.
Have I not been obedient,
I don't understand, 
why do you treat me so.
Honor thy mother and father,
is that not what I have done.
But still you grab me,
you drag me
and you stab me.
With every angry word.
You killed me 
but I'm still alive
'cuz I live on in you.

    That's a really depressing, but none the less amazing poem. :)
