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.
