Dad - Poem by Angel Skinner

I see all the other people in this big old fat thing we call life,
I think about how their life,
You are in their lives,
Why aren't you in my life like you are in theirs,
There is more to being a, dad than just providing food, clothes, & shelter,
I need all the love that you can devide beetween all 5 of your kids,
I need the love that you have besoweed upon those you call your family,
I just want to feel the love that all my friends feel,
In their day to day lives,
I think that you would be able to provide me with all of this and some,
If you were to just try,
I want nothing more than to be loved,
Some say that I will be ruined perminatly,
They say that girls like me will never recover,
When they say girls like me,
I wonder if there are lots like me,
I wonder how many other worthless men ther are out ther in this world,
I mean I understand that yo are jsut carrying on your legacy that of which was passed down to you from your dad,
I am so sorry that I will not be able to be the best daughter that you can ask for,
I will not try harder than you are,


Poet's Notes about The Poem

My father is not in my life like those around me's, father. His father was also the same way though so I cant and wont blame him for any of this. b/c he has sence stuck around and provided and worked verry hard to do so.
