Angry Poem about Family

Poem About Disappointment After Finding Biological Dad

I recently got in touch with my dad after 14 years. Everyone warned me not to get my hopes up but I took no notice and I expected him to be amazing. When I met him, I thought he was great but after about 2 weeks I realized that he wasn't interested in me at all. I have a little sister who he adores. I come second best to her all the time. I'm not jealous of her but I wish he wouldn't make it quite so obvious that he prefers her to me. it hurts me so much.

I wished so much
for my biological dad
but now I've got him
I'm feeling very sad

my world, my guide, my father
who I know nothing about
I pretend to laugh and smile
but really I scream and shout

I don't feel like his daughter
I feel second best
he hasn't made the effort
like he has with all the rest

he is nothing special
that I now can see
he is scared and lonely
and frightened just like me

so much of my life
has just been lost
I just want his love
and things that don't cost

but he doesn't want to know
he won't even try
he's the reason I hate
and also why I cry!!! x

I grew up in a very large, amazing loving family, they where so supportive and caring that one would never notice they only have one parent. Until my mom and I and my siblings moved to our new home. I started asking my mom about my dad, and after all those years, after 18 years I find out that my best, best friends dad is my father and my best friend is my twin sister. So I searched and looked for him only to find out that he was not even looking for me nor even cared about me, my heart broke into pieces, I felt abandoned and unloved by my own father.
