Poem About My Feelings Towards My Father

My Name is Shayla and I am 15 years old. People have been quite an inconsistent factor in my life, my Dad included. For years our relationship was on/off because of his lack of effort, but I always longed for that father/daughter relationship that I saw other young girls have. Now that I'm older, we go through stages of talking and not talking, but it seems to be more on my terms. It is a little sad, but I have my siblings, so I'm never alone and I love my life!

I'm Sorry...Dad

Published: April 2015

I'm sorry you missed the day I came home.
I'm sorry you left my Mum all alone.
I'm sorry you missed the first time I walked.
And I'm sorry you missed the first time I talked.

I'm sorry you missed tucking me in at night.
I'm sorry you missed turning off my light.
I'm sorry you missed me getting my first fright.
And I'm sorry you weren't there to tell me it's alright.

I'm sorry you never really cared,
Never bothered to make a call.
In fact, I'm not sorry in the slightest bit.
I'm not sorry at all.

You should be sorry,
Sorry to me,
And sorry to all of us,
For what you couldn't be.

A Dad is supposed to love,
Protect, worship and care.
A Dad is supposed to do all of this,
But most importantly be there.

But you couldn't provide,
Protect or care.
You couldn't worship.
And you couldn't be there

Because you made the choice
To never try with me.
Sure, you're on and off now,
But it's just too late, you see.

I mean, I get it now.
And although this makes me sad...
You will always be my father.
You'll just never be my Dad.

My dad was never around. He was too busy doing drugs.

My dad left the house when I was 5 years old and he told me that he would never be coming back. I remember he told me to go to back to bed. When I woke up in the morning he was gone. I felt like I had been torn in half. Eventually I had to get over it and move on with my life.

I'm now 15 years old, and even though I absolutely hate my dad because he has never been there for me, I sometimes wonder what having a dad would actually be like for some reason. But I know that my mum loves me with all of her heart, and she is the one who has always been there for me and always will be.

I kind of know how you feel. My dad has been around off and on, and he barely comes anymore. I know that my mom loves me, and I know she still loves my dad. But why? He's never around...
