    Which one are you
    And how do i know
    I call you daddy
    But im told "you look so much like your father"
    Every tv show family i saw had a father
    Even the low budget sitcoms that lasted 1 season
    So i want to hear it
    What was your reason
    Never really got to ask how you felt
    Wonder if you think moms deserved help
    My daddy or my father i still cant call it
    Fathers day that the 3rd sunday in june right,
    WAIT
    Im not sure if thats what you even celebrate
    Well if thats not the case whens daddys day
    And better yet what should i get you
    I KNOW
    Ill package up all my pain, frustration and self-hate
    That you gave me
    But i know what your thinkin
    You're right
    I dont think you'll be alive long enough to see it all
    My daddy or my father i dont know which one
    While i figure it out i guess i will continue to be
    YOUR SON

    Hi :wave:and Welcome
    this is a very deep poem
    wonderful first drop
    what I like about your tight flow
    is how you question
    then ponder
    seeking the answer
    very nice indeed
    please do share more
    Peace
    BlueWater:heart:

    Hi, ...and glad you're abroad.
    just a (little) bit of a big tip: "hate" consumes your entire body and hurts no one but 'the hater'.
    This (first) poem was off the hook...I liked it a lot and I felt every word you said. Thanks for letting us in your world...

    Sad when a child sees nothing to honor in a parent, perhaps in time, keep flowing, and welcome to destee.
