    Why would a father not love his innocent child
    Why would a father not want to see his baby girl smile?
    What did she do to to be treated untrue
    What do she do to be his love anew?
    How can she be sure she’s worthy of any man’s love
    When her own father won’t even raise his hand
    I see him and I know him but I don’t know him
    I consider myself strong and determined but often below them
    Afraid of rejection only wanting acceptance
    She’s never been in trouble always doing good
    School working doing what she should
    Humble quiet observant am I
    Because I am a fatherless child trying to understand, why?



    this poem is an expression of the way i feel hopefully one day i will be able to open and confront my mom and him, but until then........

    Never believe there was something you did to make him act that way, it's him.

    Accept, appreciate, and love yourself, because if you don't, who will.

    Stay strong.

    Peace.

    My heart goes out to the writer. Do not fear, you have a loving heart. Persevere; showing forgiveness while communicating your needs, always loving... Always, true.

    Deep write. I understand where you're coming from. But as was said before, it is him not you. Be strong for yourself, love yourself, and all other strength and love will follow.

    Stay Strong!

    ;)
