Only If You Knew, Dad?

Dad,
why won't you listen to me. Please hear my silent plea,
you so often ignore. Why can't you see my pain?
Just once, I wish you'd say;
I love you, simply because you are you.
Why can't you admire my compassion? My soul?
That you don't even know, yet cries out for recognition.
Why have you never heard my plea? A plea to understand who I am.
Grew up believing,
everything you did was right. I tried so hard to please you.
Yet I always fell somehow short of your expectations.
Why did I fail to win your love? Why have you never heard me cry?
Why have you never listened to me? You have heard my words,
but you never understood what I was trying to say.

I grew up with my dad by my side he was my everything but when I was 7 it all changed he left me for another girl. When I was supposed to be his pride and joy my life went to hell I raised myself plus my little sister. Now I'm 16 and I'm supposed to be living with him but haven't been home in months. All we do is scream and fight all he does is judge me for the way I live my life. I'm tired of trying and so tired of crying but for some reason I can't give up. He's given up on me so many times. Why can't I just do the same? This honestly did touch me a lot.
