Fatherless Still Stands Tall

Thought I needed you 
Thought you were great
Thought you were going to
be there, but now it's
too late
Hoping and praying you
would get me out that bed 
and say there's another way

Come with me I 
thought you would say
Baby we family lets 
Pray
Lets hold hands lets
share grace
I thought you would be there
Your eyes lied to my face
You love the streets more
than you love me
I lost you to everything 
why you never hold me 
Sorry to say I don't
won't you in my life I
Made it out OK
I love you but the pain
ends today.

I want a father
Really needed one to
Tell me how beautiful
I was in every way
Cant breathe don't help me
Cause I never felt a warming touch
from my Father
Only from a horny boy

I was scared that having her 
I was going to lose you in
Every way but she's here to stay
I'm glad to
cause I was missing that father
piece and she fulfilled it for YOU
She completes me
And that's why a fatherless child 
can
STAND TALL

    IN THIS POEM IS BASED ON MY REAL LIFE.....EVERYBODY DOES NOT HAVE A FATHER THAT'S GOING TO B THERE...N THIS IS MY THOUGHT S N MY FEELINGS AND I'M VERY APPLAUD SOMEONE THAT DOESN'T LIVE MY LIFE CAN EVER SAY IT WAS SELFISH OF ME TO SAY I'M A GIRL TRAPPED IN THIS BIG BIG WORLD WITH NO FATHER THINK ABOUT IT....IT'S REALITY!!!

    If you've gone through this love should be a cinch Sherelle, it really should. This would've been a lot scarier for me if I didn't have a dad that was around.
