Dad

Dad

A Poem by Speak in Silence

When I think about you tears come to my eyes
Do you even care?
Through all this pain and lies
I know you an addict and you can't help it
But you can't even try?
Obviously you're unfit
To be a dad
You said "Mom would have to change"
Really? Your going to blame her?
Wow you are WAY out of range
I'm starting to believe what she says
When I was younger I had so much faith that you could change
But now that I know the truth
I have now rearranged
My life
You are now just something that barely crosses my mind
Why are you so predictable? You can't change, can you?
You never could, and you never will
It doesn't matter, because I'm through
Did you really think I would just wait around
Until you decided you wanted to turn around
Your life?
You're done pulling me down
Because this little "arrangement" you thought you had
It's over

Author's Note

Speak in Silence
This one is for you dad. Thank you so much for doing drugs and screwing my whole childhood up. Oh thanks for making my mom's life 100 times fucking harder because you couldn't but down your addiction. So thanks a lot. I hope your life is a lot better than mine is. Oh and by the way, don't EVER try to say sorry or blame it on my mom again because I'm older now and I'm done putting up with your shit.

full of emotions. really deep and dark emotions. i do think we have the same problem. :)

just a few spelling errors:

1) 4th line: "I know you an addict and you can't help it" (you--->you're)

2) "Until you decided you wanted to turnaround" ---> turn around

3) "Your done pulling me down" (Your--->You're- you are)

nevertheless, it was a great poem. wanting for more! :)

I feel the emotion coming through, this piece is obviously very close to your heart. but the grammatical mistakes lessen the affectivness of the raw emotion, I can see someone else has pointed them out so no need to go on about it.

Im not sure how old you are, but from your picture you seem too young to have such a wise head on you.

dont neglect your old poems, cause some bugger like me always goes snooping around the old un's.

keep up the good words, more reviews inbound!

You have done a great work.
There are many parents who are very obstinate.
They ruin their families by sticking to their destructive habits.
They don't realize that their children lose honor in the society for their faults.
Your poem is a great message to such obstinate parents(dad and mom both).
I wish such parents will avail the opportunity to change in response to the motivational appeal from his/her children.
In fact,many children can't say in such strong words.

Very inspiring write.
Adore you.
Congratulations!!!

Let's hope for the best :) .
This is not a poem; its a letter to your father, the things unsaid.

I think of it as both
An intense poem, loaded with emotion
and love that can never be realized.
I love this style of poetry, it is the unloading of
true feelings , joy, despair, love, surrender and
all of the pent-up emotion that a person bottles up.
It is perfect.
Thank YOu,
----- John
