Oh Daddy Why - Poem by Regina Taylor

Oh Daddy why?
Why did you choose the drink over me?

Oh Daddy why?
Why did you let them take me away?
Away from the only home I ever knew.

Oh Daddy why?
Why did you hurt me so?

Oh Daddy why?
Why did you disappointment me so?

Oh Daddy Why?
Why did you let me down so hard?

Oh Daddy why?
Oh Daddy why?
