Dad... - Poem by Yvette Flores

Why would you do this? !
You had already started a family!
You knew what you were putting on the line! !
Why would you put your family on the line anyways? ! ?
Why would you continue to make the wrong choices? ! ? !
If you wanted to support us, there's a thing called a job! ! !
Thats how you make money and support a family! ! ! !
A job is actually LEGAL
You knew what the consequences would be if you got caught, and you still kept doing it
You aren't a big shot that can get away with everything you do
You are terrible at hiding things, because your own daughter found out
You have no idea how depressed i was, and it was mainly your fault! ! ! ! !
I shouldn't even call you a father
You haven't been there for any of my life
I wont even be able to have you at my quinceanera! ! ! ! ! !
Do you have any idea how badly that hurt me when i realized that? ! ? ! ? ! ?
My best friend got to have her father there, and i ended up crying because i realized there that you wouldn't be here! ! ! ! ! ! !
I have no respect for you anymore...
Your...not my dad...your Rico...
