Family Portrait - Poem by Miss Remy
Six kids born unto you and mom,
We had it so good and had it going on.
But somehow our world crashed in on us,
After mom passed away we all lost our trust.
Daddy went away and found someone new,
Left us all abandoned and to then he was true.
Left us here taking care of each other,
A house full of nothing but sisters and brothers.
Some of us wasn’t even close to being grown,
But daddy didn’t care he left us all alone.
The oldest ones worked to take care of all of our needs,
Got the younger ones ready for school so we could succeed.
Only came by to pay all of the bills and put food in the house,
Last time I checked that is not what parenting was about.
I was the youngest of the forgotten crew,
Daddy never once said I love you.
How could he be so mean what did we do,
We have a family portrait but it doesn’t include you.
How can we call you daddy when your not even here,
When we graduated high school you wasn’t even there.
Our family portrait has became such a disgrace,
What kind of family portrait doesn’t have daddy’s face…
