Dead Beat Dad.


My dad walked out of my life
when I Was five
He left
He told my mom bye
when I try to contact my dad
Again he told me he consider
Me dead.
IT IS something that has hurt me
for most of my life.

    it actually does sound like a poem, a very deep personal poem. The depth of honesty is very impressive. (Report) Reply
