(.2) Daddy

Poem By Amanda Lukas

Daddy never knew me.
He never took the time.
Never came to birthday parties.
Never recited a nursery rhyme.
Never held my hand.
We never watched 'The Little Mermaid',
never 'Peter Pan'.
He never payed any child support
instead, he pressured Mom to abort.
Wasn't there when his baby cried.
Wasn't there when poor Mommy died.
Wasn't there to see me to prom.
It wasn't his job (he'd left it to Mom!)
Didn't get to know me.
I suppose that he was scared.
I felt as though he didn't want me.
He just felt unprepared.

I agree with duncan. This a poem that every other person could relate to, and I'm one of them. you should check out my poem, Daddy?
This is very deep because this poem is very real to a lot of people including myself. I hope I am never the dad you write about in this poem. If this is about your dad then you should know that he missed out on a special girls life!
Don't learn to hate him, just learn to love yourself more Love duncan X
Daddy has a special little girl with a Big heart and a keen eye for poetic justice Love duncan X
this poem is really painful, I hope you will be alright.
