The hate Today I Must Keep Locked Away

Dear dad


I watched them lower your coffin today.

Oh what a great display of grieve I see before my eyes from family members that I do not regonise.

I play my part, eldest daughter and daddys lil sweerheart

Must look smart, must look sad lets pretend daddy wasn't bad.


Lets defend a man thats only plan was to drink himself to death.

Lets shelf all that hate

Lets not concentrate on his rotten soul

Lets pretend life with him did not make a hateful whole.


6ft  down your body goes

Theres a happiness within me that nobody knows.

A life with you I would never of chose.


So the  fake story goes


He was such a great man

I just don't understand

How this was gods plan

I will miss him every day

(Empty words that i must say)

The duteful loving daughter I must play.


The hate today I must keep locked away.

      So many people hating their fathers today. Well, men aren't always role models of excellence. Best of luck in your endeavor to mask your hatred.

        Yes unfortunately we all can't have that idolized father figure to look up to which is sad but thats life. Thank you. X
