Abandoment - Poem by Holly Winsor

leaving behind others to take your place 
Carrying on your name, walking around with your face 
Knowing you got left behind,
Wondering what's on my fathers mind,  
He didn't even think to try 
To leave my mother with tears down her face, left me to only embrace 
Only for me to ask her Why?  

My mother can give me answers; my father left behind 
For he can give his love to another 
But he can't give his love to me 
My mother would give her life,  
As she has given life to me,
My father I hope to love 
Will he ever really love me?  

He can take and make a life and keep living on 
But what is it like to be hurt by your father 
He doesn't know because he doesn't care 
He left me alone here in the darkness but a bright white light guides me 
Back to reality, my father may have left me But I still have my dignity 
My life will go on and so will his 
Our paths may cross 
He will see how I have grown 

But the man is no longer my father 
I'm my own person now No thanks to him 
I am proud of myself 
My family are my stone and he is the sand 
As the grains drift away, the stone will still stand 
My family are my life and Nothing will change that
When he left he was no longer our dad 
He has made his choice And so have I
