    my daddy.
    so many things i need you to understand
    you are my first, last, and only impression of a man.
    so when i seen you beating on my moms, i thought that was ok
    is it any wonder i ran to a man who beat me everyday?
    when your whores knocked on the door to give me your money
    you never taught me any different; i thought nothin funny
    when you showed me how to sew to hide money in the couch
    taught me how to cook cut measure 10 years old baggin a ounce
    are you surprised that i ended up doin time too?
    are you surprised that i was bangin these streets like you?

    my daddy.
    the only one who wanted me born on this earth
    and you never let me forget it, how little i was worth
    and you used it to death, coming in my room at night
    but i wanted you to stay, so i closed my eyes tight
    insisting you love me most while i endure being touched
    and now i can't feel love unless im getting f***ed
    i wonder why i associate affection with hurt
    why i fall in love with any man who treats me like dirt
    why money is all it takes to appease my soul
    by my bedside next morning you left diamonds and gold
    tennis bracelets and furs at the age of nine?
    i was wearing your guilty conscience the whole time.
    my brothers-you gave me away like one of your hoes
    is it any wonder i fight any man who gets close?

    my daddy.
    all the drama in my life i could trace back to something you did
    and i ask GOD what punishment made me your kid
    many nights i've begged for death just for my heart to stop
    trying to survive the legacy you left for me is a burden i cant drop
    i hate you so much. i remember crying for you to save me, please
    from the bruises and bumps, the scrapes life left on my knees
    you never came- you created me your human monster and left
    and i never learned to fully trust or love anyone else
    and i hate you, daddy, but the saddest part of the whole thing
    is that deep inside, i still just want you to love me...

    sorry this happened. it's sickening how dads could do that.
    but that is why God is left as your Father and He gives you strength..

    peace...
