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.

My Dad

I wished so much
for my biological dad,
but now that 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!

I know how you feel. My father left, and before that, he did a lot of horrible things to me, my brother and my mother. Finally, we moved away and many years have passed, but all of a sudden, he reached out, and I heard his voice for the first time in 20 years. I may have no remorse. I had no clue what he had done to me and my brothers and mother. All I’ve been writing about all these years is forgiveness and how I wanted to hear his voice again. I realize I just wanted him to say he was sorry, but he never did. He wanted me to call him and tell him how my life was going. He passed away, and I was so mad.

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.
