Shannon Nicole Poems
A Father Figure...
Usually a father figure would be someone that cares,
Obviously..Mine does not.
He'll visit once a month,
Not even that.
He questions why we'd want to speak to him,
Instead of saying 'I miss you.'
If we cry,
He just look right passed us,
And smile at his new wife and new kids.
A real father figure would look at his children with worry,
And just about dropp everything to know what's on their mind.
A real father figure would smile and tell his kids how proud he is,
Even if all we did was get a B on a homework assignment.
A real father figure would...
I'll try to be happy
I'll try to smile
But if this promise is broken
I am sorry!
I cannot help that I'm numb
Full of broken hearts and tears
I'm trying to show that my emotions are frozen
And see who can heal me
Let me be able to see the happiness, Love contains
