so called man like you


You said "I wipe my hands of her"  as you shook your stupid head
you wrote her off quicker then a dog that was dead
 but the joke is on you

her very first breath was very hard earned
and fragileness of her life was very well learned
but she made it through

her skin was so blue, her mother so scared
17 years old, but the dad never cared
shame on you

after her many surgeries she finally came home
you weren't there but she was not alone
her family is better then you

she is more beautiful than springs first rose
and she gets prettier with each day she grows
but you wouldn't have a clue

they haven't diagnosed exactly what's wrong
just a chromosome disorder, one gene where it doesn't belong
but, it doesn't matter to you

she sits there quietly with a grin on her face
because a better man came and took your place 
thank God he is not you

this summer is approaching at a rapid pace
she will graduate highschool, with pride on her face
we will not invite you

the best thing about my Angel being this way
Is she is innocent, and innocent she will stay
and she will never be ruined by men like you

    Thank you, just unfortunately this poem ended happily, but the ending was cut short..... she passed away last month and she was supposed to graduate this year. the sadest part is he didn't even go to her funeral, no call or anything. she deserved much better. Thanks for visiting and for your compliment

    Thank you Sara, it's true about how some people walk away from parenting responsibilties, this one isn't about my daughter, she is my niece but we were raised like sisters, she is severely disabled and her father is worthless, and in my opinion, not a man at all. thank you for your visit and your kind words
