Abandonment Poem

Dad, if you're out there reading this,... No one can replace you. I wonder why but I still love you. If you want or even care try. Try to keep me. I'm so sad when everyone asks "you live with your grandma?" I know mom is helpless after the years trying to break through her shell. So Please. Find me. You've always had my number.

Dad Where Are You Now?

©

Published: November 2011

Since from my first steps,
To the broken promises you've never kept.
From My first dance,
To your last chance.
I've always asked Where are you now?
You leave your first daughter and the woman you love, How?
You say you will come but I always end up in tears,
You were supposed to be the daddy to scare away all the fears.
You were supposed to tell me you loved me everyday, in every way.
You were supposed  to tell me I was Daddy's little girl,
In the daddy daughters dance you were supposed to take me for a twist and a twirl.
You weren't supposed to make me cry.
You aren't supposed to make me wonder why.
Was it me? Was it some thing I said.
Heck, no you wouldn't care if I was dead.
You drop me.
Leave when you said you'll see me
you lost your one and only daughter.
So where are you now, not a friend, dad, not even a father.

This story hit close to home because my father left before I was born. But he kept in touch with my mom and sent me a ring before never talking to me again. Soon my mother married and I was adopted, and then came a divorce. 8 years later I was thirteen when his new wife attacked me. She called the police and my father and said I attacked her. When he got home I was sitting on the front porch waiting, I cried and tried telling him she attacked me that I was defending myself. He decided that I was no longer welcome in his home and kicked me out the next day. I have been with my mom ever since, but the pain is there everyday. I haven't heard from him since.
