My Daddy is dead, but the Man is still alive!


Daddy died before I was born.

I've never had a daddy to hold,
a daddy that was there fore me,
a daddy that was mine,

I've never had a daddy to call, daddy,
a daddy to rely on,
a daddy to call,

I've never had a daddy to protect me,
a daddy to love me,
a daddy to teach me,

My daddy died before I was born.

The man that should have been my daddy is still alive,
still breathing, talking, moving,
still known, loved, cared,

My daddy died the day he walked out on my mum, before I was born,
My daddy died when he wanted to abort me,
My daddy died when he did not get to know me,
care for me,
understand me,
contact me,
or look at me,

My daddy is dead but the man is still alive!

My daddy died when he walked out on his family,

My daddy died when he did not get to know me,
My daddy died when he told me he didn't care,

My daddy died when he betrayed me,
My daddy is a Tuma in my life,
My daddy is the Cancer that prevents me,
My daddy is my Prison,
My daddy is a Murderer,
My daddy is the Stalin that mutes me,
My daddy is the Adolf that fears me,

My daddy is killing me, every year of my life:

My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me
My daddy is killing me

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
