Daddy Daddy Daddy!
You stole my pride
First went country
Next family
Then self
My bruised soul!

Daddy Daddy Daddy!
You gave me birth
- Left me with a curse-
Stripped my dignity
Universe a curse

Daddy Daddy Daddy
You cursed me the day
I was born
You want to cut my umbilical chord
You hate Mom
I remind you of Mom
You hate me!

Daddy Daddy Daddy!
Why daddy, what day?
What have I done?
You stabbed Mom
Mom stabbed you back
I remind you of Mom
You stabbed me!

Daddy Daddy Daddy
What is left?
But grief itself
What is left?
Anger and envy
Your will my will

Daddy Daddy Daddy!
I wear black shoes
Black pants, black shirt
Black blazer black tie
Black on black heart art

Daddy Daddy Daddy!
You stole my light
Heritage, country family
Self no self left
Thank you daddy!

Daddy Daddy Daddy!
I have no foundation
To lean on,
Silence my night
I shun daylight

Daddy Daddy Daddy!
No mercy for men
Men are hurtful
They have fast legs
They move on!

Daddy Daddy Daddy!
My eyes hurt
I cannot cry
Thank You Daddy!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
