Fatherless Son - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

This home is broken
It's been this way for to long
All the words you've spoken
They always come out wrong
Why does it have to be this way
It's you I can't believe
You've made me so angry
These thoughts I can't conceive

Just want to be a son
And to have a dad
Before my life had begun
That's something I didn't have
I came into this world
You didn't even care
Two boys and a girl
But you were never there

Give me just one reason
To forgive you for what you've done
you've committed treason
Against your daughter and your sons
You are suppose to be a dad
But your sitting in a cell
The things I never had
And guess I never will.

(This poem is dedicated to my (father) who gave me life and nothing more and is based on true story of mine.

    I feel so sad after reading this poem, especially after I read that it's based on your life.Truly sympathise with you. But it made you a stronger person, maybe this is a positive side to the infortunate!
