Sarcasm intended

A Poem by Ethereal Brookes
"

shout to my dad who isn't very good at being a dad

"
i drew a picture
and my dad wanted to add "flow"
but dad i don't need another lecture
where you talk loud and slow

i painted my feelings
and my dad wanted to add "energy and color"
but dad you don't get the meaning
stop making me feel smaller

i made dinner
and my dad wanted to add "flavor and a prayer"
but dad flavor doesn't make you skinnier
and i don't have a savior

i found music i liked
and my dad wanted to add "something new"
but dad your music gives me head aches and leaves me wiped
yes some songs are okay but very few

i finally admitted i was depressed
and my dad didn't care
i told him i wanted to die
and my dad didn't care
i told him his wife was terrible
and my dad didn't care

i told him i felt unwanted
and he made no change
i told him i couldn't trust him
and he made no change
i told him i wanted to live with me my mom
and he made no change

When i do something right he wants to add something to make it his way
but when i'm feeling down and i need something from him, his mind starts to stray
so thank you so much daddy.
for loving me when i needed to be loved.
for wanting me to be happy.
for hating my art.
for criticizing me.
thanks.

As a father I realize I do this with my oldest (7). I don't try put him down in everything he does, I'm just trying to teach him and make him look at things from a new angle. Who knows, maybe its just a natural fatherly instinct to make our offspring try to do everything better. Just some of us get caught up in this. Thank you for your poem! I liked it and who knows, maybe it will help me to be a better father! :]
