Respect - Poem by Sarah Lacy

You walk in the door loud and obnoxious So I tell you to shut it.
Then you tell me to be respectfull towards you, you say “I’m your father”
Why should I show respect towards a man who does not deserve my respect?
You’ve been M.I.A for 14 years of my life.
And now you seem to think you can just waltz right back in
And expect me to forgive for all those times
When you’ve been drunk three straight days in a row
Or when you would disapear for weeks
Or when my mother flew Half way across the country
To make sure you weren’t going to die cause you got into an
Accident drunk driving again Mind you it’s not the first time
Or should I forgive you for the time
When I was at a cheer practice and I got a call from a number I didn’t know so I answered it and they said it was the prison and you wanted to talk to me
I still believed in you then I thought you were amazing So I believing in you didn’t believe them and hung up 15 minutes later my mom called and asked if you’d called that’s when it hit me That’s also when I learned all those accidents were from drunk driving.
So give me one good reason on why I should show you respect?
