    Without A fatha I hold so much hate inside/
    You'll neva understand what my life is like/
    So why botha tryin' to explain it to you/
    You was neva there fatha I hate you/

    Now that I look back and understand the facts/
    My lyrics here to haunt you they the payback/
    I wanna make eye contact smack you and call you a *****/
    But I know in my mind that wouldnt solve ****/
    Say ya abjact man your apoligies dont mean nothin'/
    Cause the happiness ya showin' now its all frontin'/
    Actin like I should consider you my fathahood idole/
    Only thing you be to me is my muthafuckin' rival/
    Had me thinkin' suicidal cause you was neva there/
    And inside my mind I knew that you'll neva care/
    It takes 1 to make me foreva to raise me/
    ***** you ditched out when I was jus' a baby/
    Latly you been actin like a man/
    But Scruplez 2 times stronga the man yes I am/
    I'd neva beat my kids, wife then leave my home/
    Single moms tryin' to raise 3 all on here own/
    Now you talk bout you bought my cd and you feeling it/
    But the plastic wrapin' cova ***** you aint even peeled it/
    Probly didnt buy it eitha probly be stealin it'/
    Fatha our realationship neva be healin it/

    Chourus.

    as a mother and daughter i know the pain's there
    to be treated this way is so very unfair
    we deserve more than that
    no one will ever dispute that fact
    but in spite of the obvious
    we've chosen to be positive
    dealing with the straight facts
    moving on getting phat
    hey ... i think it's kewl
    Destee like it like that

    very nice flow ...

    Welcome Welcome Welcome !

    the flow was ALL DAT...

    ...but the message leaves a little to be desired.

    'til you can get past the anger, hatred, frustration of not having him in your childhood life, you won't be able to FULLY accomplish your goals in life. regardless of what POPs did or did not do, you still have to be you. the YOU in you requires a positive focus...not the negative. the SON you will father {i assume you're a brutha} will require the positive...not the negative. the impact to your public should be a positive one...not a negative.

    LIVE your life...not his.

    peace/blessings/WELCOME.

    Was where you are at for many years...many years. But this year I decided that I was more important as a father than he is/was as a non - father. That realization removed all the hate I had for him... a man who has been dead for 32 years. I hope your hate leaves you as it did me. BTW liked how you worked the words in this piece.

    This got me in the heart. For many years I was told that the man who raised me was my father. But that was a lie. After many more years, I found him, strangely enough, still in town near the scene of the "crime". For reasons I'll never understand he remained silent. Time continues to heal my wounds as I struggle with my anger and all my unanswered questions, while he struggles with his guilt, near death.

    In agreement with Brotha Heartbeat; being the best possible father to my 3 sons and 1 daughter, that I can be. That is what is important to me now.

    Peace
