    "I have been thinking of my father lately,
    The eleventh month,the eleventh day,the eleventh child of the eleventh child.

    Memories resurface like the plague of a chill.The voice turned melodious,strings notes from a guitar.
    'Tears On My Pillow' no longer comforts,
    'Daddy's Home' refuses to be a welcome upon my lips and ears.

    There he sits,there he stays.Life...
    forever and a day.I don't know what to feel about my father lately.I have immortalized him within my skin tone,my features,my ever present Scorpion nature.

    How much has really been passed?There he sits,there he stays...
    How long will I have to decide?"

    My daddy still breathes...
    But never there to meet my needs,
    emotional, physical, and mental the same...
    He passes me by day by day.
    I to can look in mirror and view his face
    behind my tears caused by fears
    of not knowing this man that lives so near
    but ignores me like a blank memory in his head.
    To him...maybe I'm dead.
    But I'm not,
    its only his love I desire, I need.

    (I wasn't sure if I interpreted meaning correctly...But I still feel the words...It made me think...still thinking....)
