    our bond was once broken, but now slowly mendin with thread
    cuz our past chose this future and we're constantly bumpin heads
    the anger piled inside me was created by ur intentions
    maybe not purposely but it certainly taught me many lessons

    my impression never impressed u
    it caused deep depression cuz my best was never enuf 4 u
    the only guidance i recieved was from my experience in pain
    tears dropped, hearts broke, and my mind strained

    But my intent grew larger and my dreams helped me maintain

    questions weren't asked and answers were never predicted
    my knowledge grew and ur curiosity was restricted
    my reflection became my best friend and writin became my solution
    thoughts grew to theories, theories grew to plans- these steps lay out the conlcusion

    ive always known ur love existed, but it appeared to b hidden
    i started out with this mission 2 achieve life thru ur vision
    but i took a turn on a path that led me to revision
    so now i do all for mw and follow my ambition

    it may seem impossible, but ive dropped the thoughts that carried hatred
    i said it would never happen, but i cant fake it

    i owe u this, slowly but surely, im gettin over it.

    What a beautiful ending to an otherwise tragic story. Any father would be proud to have child grow up into the person that you have become. Thanks for sharing this wonderful saga.
