Betrayal

Published: July 2008

We trusted you with all our hearts,
Just to find that you didn't care.
No more lies, no more cries.
It's all over; there's no more time.
You had your chance to make it right,
But you just gave up the fight.
How can we believe you now?
You broke our hearts once again
And we're not proud of what you did.
All the cries we gave to you,
All the time we spent with you.
How could you treat us like you do?
We loved you and this is what we get.
A part of us wants to let it go, but the rest of us just said no.
This is how I feel right now,
and I just had to let it out.

For years I felt I wasn't good enough for you, you only made me cry. Why were you always angry at me dad? All I did was try. I wanted to make you proud with the things I accomplished but somehow, it still wasn't good enough for you. You gave me every reason not to trust you, because you were never there for me. You may be my dad but you will never be a father, because it takes a man to be one and that is something you will never be. I hope you realize the things you have done and all the damage you have caused to me. I have no respect for you and I hope you know it's all because of the things you have done. Why would you disown me then think I'll forgive you when you want to apologize? If you think I have forgiven you for the things you have done, you are wrong. Think again. In a way I thank you though, you have made me stronger and you have made me realize that people like you aren't even worth my time.
