Cycle of Two Daddy's

I was born with two Daddy's
One was my mothers first love
And one was my mothers fling
Sure she loved the fling as well
But my other Daddy told him to go to hell

My mothers fling was my biological donor
He abandoned my mother during her pregnancy
Never looking back and making himself unknown
Until I was twelve and he showed up at our home

My life would never be the same
I thought surely my sisters and I came from the same man
Though my last name was different from theirs
For some reason I never questioned it

I knew my life would change dramatically
Soon after I found that my fathers son and I were his only two
I tried to get closer to him and forever he forgot
He forgot I was his daughter and spoke of all his women
He forgot I was his family and not necessarily his 'friend'

He forgot to come see me one promised Christmas Day
He forgot to call or visit on my most memorable Birthday
He seemed to forget everything whenever it came to me
So I left the man in his situation.... I just let things be

Now my real father, who had stepped up to the plate
He was who I called Daddy every step of the way
No matter what the situation he was with my mom well before my birth
He provided for me and still provides for me if I am ever need

He has never forgot about me
He has never forgotten a Birthday, a Christmas or how to be my friend
He has never forgotten his place as my true Daddy

Kind of strange to some families to hear what I say
However common in other families this is all they know
In our family the cycle of Two Daddy's didn't begin with me
My mother also had a mother who gave her Two Daddy's

Now it has come to pass that I too have two children
I hoped to someday become a married woman
Never did I see my life turning out this way
I wanted to end this cycle, this has to go away

As much as I hate to say this
I did all I could do to stop this from happening
But there will be a time when the Cycle of Two Daddy's
Of my own two precious babies
Will have me singing the blues........

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
