Abandonment Poem

A girl vents her anger at her father who is not present in her life

You're Not My Father

© Kristin K. Hudson
To have you last name
makes me ill
you make me so angry
I want to kill!

I hate your voice
and the thought of you
you were never there
when I needed you!

you're inconsiderate
you're a lazy slob
how could you do
what you did to mom?

It's like you don't
even accept me
what kind of father
can you be?

You're stupid for thinking
that I'd forgive
what you did to me...to mom
how do you live?

Do you regret
I hardly doubt
I bet that I'm
the last thing you think about.

Dont lie to me
I know I'm right
I don't want you
in my sight!

Stay where you are
don't bother
you're lousy - I hate you
you're not my father!!

But, that's okay
you see
because I don't need
your money!

You've forgotten
me before
go ahead...do it
some more!

LOSER! JERK! - I hate you
you're not my father
and guess what
I'm no longer
your daughter!

  • I feel the exact same way! This poem inspires me, he doesn't deserve you and I don't see why he doesn't love you because you seem like a very intelligent person. Don't weep over him, take it from me I have had a really bad childhood and it's all my dads fault! Sometimes I wonder why God didn't save me and take me away... But then I realized that if God took me away from my dad then I wouldn't be the person I am today.

  • This poem describes exactly how I feel about my "father". I guess some of us just get the short end of the straw when it comes to fathers but I gained a different dad who has made my world such a better place and I've gained the ability to be a stronger and better person because of it.

  • This is a sad poem, it almost made me cry. It was as if though it had been written by my own child(ren). You see I did the same but tried to stay in their lives and because of one person my relationship was severed. Not that I blame anyone only me. I always prayed that when they found the truth their opinion about me would change, but, alas, it has not. Before I was dealing with children, now I am dealing with adults who are still hurt by things that were true and not true. If the children are hurting because of their father, trust me when I say the father too is hurting...How do you move forward? You have to forgive the past.
