Hey you! Yeah, I'm talking to you, "Dad"!
Where were you when I needed you the most in my life?
You were never at my side,
You just wanted a carefree life.
Where were you when I was growing up?
You were busy starting over,
Drinking from your golden cup.
Did you pretend that I don't exist anymore,
As you were finding someone new?
Well, I hope you cherish everyday you live,
Because I'm coming for you.
Never at a birthday nor graduation,
You didn't care for me, that's clear.
I hope you have a good story for this,
Because it's one I'm dying to hear.

I can relate to this, not because of my dad but my mom. My mom left me 3 months after I was born for some European guy, and I have never seen her since. My mother has had (so far) 4 boys and 3 girls. I guess that would make them my half brothers and sisters?

My dad left before I was even born. He denied me before even giving me a chance. Worse part is I look like him. I have 2 older siblings from same parents and he has gone off to have like 4 more kids. I can't stand to look at myself becuase I see him. I've only met him once and never seen him again.

Your poem is for my grandson who I have raised. watching him grow and be ignored by both parents was painful. I raised him with love and forgiveness for them but nothing really explains the selfish behavior of his parents. Thank you I have given him this poem....

This poem reminds be of my own father who was never there for me.
He was with his other happy family his girlfriend and her 2 kids.
Whenever I was around they pretended I didn't exist.
I finally had the guts to tell him to go get f*#ked this year and to stay out of my life
since then it's been a battle but I'm going to win
