17 - Daddy

Daddy said that I would make him proud,
well look at me now Dad, look at me now.
I'm twenty-four years old and no closer to my goal,
well maybe I just need to get out of this hole.

I'm not a stupid guy, infact I think quite the opposite,
I think I just need my break and then I may have cracked it.
I want to make him proud, but I also want to deserve it,
I'm not a stupid guy, no, I think quite the opposte.

Daddy said that I would make him proud
I wish I could hear him say it out loud.

The End
