Dad

I hate you, Dad, for what you did
to me when I was just a child,
A helpless thing whom you could beat until
the excess anger was drained.
To me, when I was just a child, 
You were God unmerciful,
until the excess anger was drained
And you were once again my friend.
You were God unmerciful,
And I was Satan, Lord of hell.
A helpless thing that you could beat,
until you curdled my love.



[This was written as a child- I was 12 years old. I don't hate my dad though. Those 
were just the feelings at the time i wrote this]

    Been there, you wrote well of the rage that takes hold of a parent. The face of anger.
