To My Dad - Thank You For My Victory - Poem by Whitedoves Nest

It was you that wiped away my tears
It was you that protected; allayed my fears
It was you that always understood
It was you that I turned to; as I should

It was you I was with at a young age
It was you I looked up to; like a sage
It was you that was there when I scrapped my knee
It was you that moulded a little one; into me

It was you who took me on these adventures
It was you who gave horsey rides and such ventures
It was you the provided me food and water
It was you that took advantage of your loving daughter

It was you who molested; who made me thin
It was you who frightened me with one grin
It was you who broke my innocent trust
It was you who I hated; it is just a must

Sure you're sorry; you ought to be
I was crushed; I was not me
I wanted to commit heinous suicide
I wanted to just run and hide

The thoughts in my head are now gone
I'm recovered from this awful scorn
However, you want me in your life
You and my mother; your giving wife?

I look forward now; confidence soars
I cannot understand your troubles; your scores
You have missed out on your daughter
It hurts you; just like it ought-a

I hope you like life alone
Sitting back on your self proclaimed throne
For me I look forward; ever so fast
Knowing I have victory; finally at last
