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.
