Daddy Who...? - Poem by Lacey UnKnown

I know you're my father
And I should listen to you
But I just don't understand
Why you don't care
How could you leave
Just walk away as if you didn't have me
You pretend that you care
But I know that you don't
You never have

I cried and yelled
But nothing changed
I sobbed into the phone
Asking why you don't try
You don't act like my father
You act like a child
How could you just walk away
And pretend you didn't have a child
I feel like the one man who should be there
Has disappeared off the face of the earth
All little girls love spending time with daddy
Not me
Not with you
My father
What father?

For Brian

    I liked the message and the delivery.

    I feel this pain everyday, thru my children who father is absent in their lives. And I blame myself. I had no father to speak of either, although I dont, nor do I ever, remember missing him..Cause the father I did have, for the few short years he was in my life..caused me soo much pain that I would have rather he ignored me competly.

    It causes you pain..but it could be worse. Belive me.

    Wow this is a wonderful poem. I hope he pays attention. Maybe he will read it and get a clue. I hope you work it out and remember this does not define you as a person. There are kids that grow up everyday without one or the other parent. You are hopefully loved with others around you to help fill in. Great poem! (Report) Reply

    I gave this poem a nine because it really hits home
    with me. Not because I had a daughter, but because I didn't.
    This poem makes me angry. Because I would have loved to have
    had a little girl. I have no sympathy for a man who leaves his children.
    Particularly one who leaves his daughter.
