Just Like Daddy

My daddy is a dope boy. I see him sacking rocks. So now I'm putting my toys in mommy's ziplocs. She's in the kitchen cooking but I know she is crying. Daddy's never home, he's gone all the time. I think my daddy loves because he bought me a pair of shoes. When I go out with daddy people say how cute. I think my daddy's strong Mommy thinks he's wrong. We pray for him every night, my mommy says it's only right. He hasn't called in weeks, I'm forgetting how he speaks. His last words were mean and ugly Sometimes I wonder if he thinks of me. I wanted to be just like daddy, but I could never leave my mommy. When he left I think he was mad at me. I didn't pick up my toys so mommy helped me clean. Daddy said I was too loud and it was kind of mean. He bought some beer that night and mommy got upset. He really hurt my mommy I never will forget. I want to be just like daddy, but daddy is always gone. Daddy is in the streets and he forgot me, his son. Daddy didn't see my graduation and wasn't at my wedding. Daddy wasn't there for my promotion and where my life was heading. I pray a silent prayer when I tuck my son in bed. He says I want to be just like you daddy and I softly kiss his head.
