Poem About Bad Father Daughter Relationship

From age 13 to present (age 18) my relationship with my father has been starting to fade away. We have not gotten along, and deep down inside I wish we could. This poem goes out to all of the daughters feeling mentally abused or emotionally heart broken by their fathers. I hope for daughters to read this and know that they're not the only ones suffering through a rough time with their fathers.

Broken Hearted Daughter


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2014 with permission of the Author.

Photographs of you holding me in your arms,
You protected me from any kind of harm,
You influenced me to play guitar,
I was always your number one rock star.

You looked so proud to be my dad,
But now every day you look so sad,
I wonder why you turned into this,
You're violent with your tone and not your fists.

I'm thankful you're not abusive physically,
But you turn my emotions into misery,
Money seems like your only desire,
You're only happy when your income is higher.

Why can't you just be happy and smile,
It could make you feel better for awhile,
You never wipe my tears as they fall,
The problem between us is far from small.

There is an empty spot in my soul,
Our relationship is taking a toll,
I love you with all my heart,
I don't want our relationship to fall apart.

It's holding on by one last thread,
I regret the bad things that I said,
Can't you realize the expression across my face,
It's drawn with dark colors of disgrace.

But I guess you just can't see,
How much you really mean to me,
I wish I could have a dad and not just a father,
That would always be there for his daughter.

You never care what I have to say,
Tears fill my eyes as I look away,
I cannot hide my pain any longer,
Please change soon or I'll be a goner.
