My Dad Is Dead To Me

the way he is
the things he does
the way he abuses my mom

my future holds nothing
except a parent that drinks
i hate him
and yet he loves me

i must run
run far away from him
and his alcoholic abuses
and his drug use

why does my dad even care?
he is a big hypocrite
and he should just go
he is dead to me

someone help me

    Ian, a powerful, painful poem to read which expresses your deep hurt, anger and confusion. Is there anyone you know and trust to share this poem with, to share your feeling with who can assist you in receiving the help you need, your mom, and your dad? I hope so. If you don't know anyone personally then perhaps a counselor at your school can be of help in helping you in this hard time. There are also organizations and centers which help young people who are struggling in families like the one you describe in your poem.

    You can search online for information about individuals, organizations, helping places near you which may be of assistance to you in getting the help you are asking for.

    Be kind to yourself.
