A Daughter's Plea

The ego in you makes you an ignorant person you don't wanna be
I beg you dad,please listen to me
My opinions may give you some sense
That I am your daughter and your bestfriend

Sometimes I feel so jealous about my dear friends
As they are so close to their fathers like needle and threads
Please give us a chance to be like them
Because God sent you to guide me through in this strange land

I may get in to your nerves sometimes
But that is part of everyday life
There is always a bright light on the other side
You taught me that and I will always bear that in mind 

Please don't swear at me for every little matters
Harsh words from you- I am always shattered
Your vulgarity makes me scared
Pleeeeaaaase ! dad I don't wanna walk away from you forever !

Coming to terms with your father and your own feelings. Keep writing, you will tell yourself much.

Ulamila, your poem resonates with me because my father and I had a similar relationship when I was growing up. We eventually became closer, and he became kinder, when I was in my early 20's. So hang in there :)

Ahh, it s such a lovely poem,Im sure that it will definitely bring a smile on your father s face, you see that parents love their children no matter what happens, some show it, while others don t, but they still love you and their harsh words are always for your betterment, me and my father are bestfriends, he don t have a sibling so we spend our time together, play cards, chess and talk together, he don t talk much to my sister but he loves her most, so good luck and welcome to poetrysoup
