emotional girl

i just wanted to be daddy's little girl

I awoke to the sound of blue and red sirens

  more times then I can count, I have watched them take you away

  with the last bit of hope I had left for you


I gave you chance after chance to be the father

  you were supposed to be, yet you still chose it over me

  leaving me with heartbreak and misery 


You made me feel as if I didn't matter

  while you watched my heart slowly shatter,

  but you didn't care that the family was breaking

  all you care about was the drugs you were taking


it's sad to see you haven't changed,

  but what can I expect other than your mind games

  and its not that I didn't hope better for you its 

  that I already knew what you would do


its sad to say im better off without you

  but what's even sadder is the fact that you already knew 

  I hope you realize what you have done and lost



oh wait,sorry i guess its never your fault

  well let me end it before it becomes a sorrow letter

  about me knowing you would never get better

    My Father went to jail for selling drugs. He's missed out on most of my life. He said he's going to change, but I don't know what to believe. I don't know If I should be happy, or sad. I have no real connection to him. Hell, I don't even know what's it like to even have a father!

      I'm am sorry to hear that I understand what it's like, my father also left me at a young age. He chose his drugs and alcohol over my family so I understand and I'm very sorry because I know how it feels and I hope that you can have peace with that feeling. I will be praying for you

      Beautiful writing. Thanks for open the window of your heart and let others know in a beautiful way how sorrow it can bring to have unfit parents. My dad was alcoholic too and I did suffer because of that. Mostly because the way he treated my mother. My heart and thoughts are with you.
