Father, why did you desert me when I needed you so?
How could you watch me leave and let go?
You threw me away like yesterday's dirty trash
Why did you take my heart to stomp and thrash?
How could you choose a woman over your own child?
Acting like I am to blame for being angry and wild
Father, why me? I ask you at every chance given
Why would you let me alone to figure out living?
When my mother left, you looked at me cruelly
Thus started you putting my heart on a pulley
Father, why did you reject me and my undying love?
And when I was on the edge you tried to shove
Me over the edge for your own selfish reasons
With your parental trust you committed treasons
You tossed me out and I grew up all alone
I can honestly say I felt fear to the bone
So one last time before I am done for good
Father, why didn't you love like a father should?
