Happy Father's Day

The sight of you disturbs me Yet…you peered into my crib to keep me safe You changed my diapers Held me when I was sick Calmed me when I was scared But left me when you didn’t care You abandoned a family in need You took for granted the giver of life To bend to your demands made no sense Your arrogance made you look weak Now you play as if you did nothing to effect Your new[her] life is too late You no longer peer into my life I keep you out to keep me safe You make me sick! Happy Betrayers Day
