Eject the reject

Why did you kick me out at 14?
I find this highly disturbing and obscene.
I had nowhere to go and you sent me on my way like you had nothing better to do that day. 
You handed my heart to the unknown, and didn't care about the pain I'd shown.
You had what you needed, I was not in the frame, You told me I wasn't playing the game. 
My step dad, the devil in disguise, hatched his plan to get me outside. 
A quick ejection was their scheme. They booked a holiday, I was not in the theme. 
What a financial burden I must have been to throw me out as a frightened teen.

I felt the world beneath my feet evaporate,
giving birth to a new definition of hate. 
Bitterness took a hold of me and I became a person I didn't want to be. 
Nevertheless I had to survive, I had no choice,
I couldn't let them play my game, they had no voice. 
No voice against me anymore, 
No call or even a knock at the door. 
No birthdays, Christmases or any that passed by, you didn't even take the time or even bastard try. 
'She is not my responsibility anymore' I remember you hissed,
No I am not, and I am glad I am not missed. 
Why would I ever want to be like you? 
You are pathetic down to the little things you do. 
I have a daughter now and she will never see any of this heartache you betrothed upon me.
She will never worry about being kicked outside because she has her strong mommy by her side. Like you was supposed to do for me,
But you didn't, you left me in misery.
Your actions have caused a ripple effect and made me think of your heinous neglect.
So how does it feel today, years later and no game to play?
I heard your marriage broke down and wonder what happened to that clown?
He left you for another, you didn't give him what he needed…. 
Exactly what you did to me, but this story won't repeated.
