Dear Dad,

Dear Dad,

A Poem by

about my birth father


















You were never there for me

When I woke up you went to bed

If I needed something you didn’t care

When I cried you weren’t there

You didn’t think I new what you were up to

I’m scared

You thought I was to little to understand

You emotionally hurt us all

We left

Moving again and again

You must not of thought how this would affect me

When you were here you didn’t care

Now that I’m gone you want to see me

You want to try

You want to be a father

Its to late

You pushed us away

Maybe you should have tried when you had the chance

I’m older now

Old enough to make my own decisions

I wonder if you even acknowledge that I’m in the same world as you

Now the only thing that scares me is meeting someone like you

The decisions he made as a man are his fault.. not yours. This poem has so many truths, it is his loss.. not yours. I am proud that you are able to express yourself in such a good way. I hope you NEVER have to meet someone like him. Good Job.

wow. being pushed away from a parent is not the easiest thing to recover from I wish you luck in your future. Don't waste your tears on him. Yes he does acknowledge that you are in the same world, but he is scared to face what he will soon have to face later in the future.Be strong in all you do because you are a confidant young women and you have every right to let your heart shine. I'm here for you when ever you want to talk. Great work.great great great.
