Daddy Dearest

Nothing is the same anymore, I have yet to see what good You're visit really was. The only Thing you've caused is pain. I don't care if it's your blood That gave me life, I want nothing To do with you, as you claimed The same in the past years. I was nothing but an Inconvenience to you. A little girl can stop A hard partying man cold. It wasn't you who taught me The ways of life, you weren't the One who showed me what A true father is. No, why even bother wasting My time thinking about you? You're not worth the fleeting Seconds that you pass in my mind. I know of what you did to Mum, I know about the drugs, I know about the anger You've felt towards me for ruining your life. You can lie to me, say you Love me, that I'm your daughter, I have to love you. But think, why should I give up my happiness? To acknowledge you would simply Be the final pin in my heart, I knew I was messed up before, and There's nothing you can do to make it any better. You're not on my list when it Comes to family, I don't care that You're trying to say you love me, Where were you when I needed you? When I needed someone to lean On, someone to catch my tears? Those Tears dried long ago. Sorry, You missed your chance to change. Karma burns terribly, I hope you Can see that now.

I have the same feelings if not worse when it comes to the relationship with my father. We never really had a real father daughter relationship anyway. It seems you may have suffered more than me cause I never cared about him like he never cared about me. I don't know you but, I'm glad that you are being a survivor and is able to write poetry about it. Keep your head up lady!

Heaven, this is very sad and emotional .... I can not even begin to imagine ..having so much resentment towards my dad... he is my second world... on the other hand I see where you are coming from. I hate my brothers with a passion no one will believe .. ... enjoyed, have yourself a wonderful day~luv*PD :-)

Very deeply moving and touched me in my heart. The feeling of abandonment is strong. Very well written.
