I wrote this when I turned 16......and received not a card, not a note, nothing from my Dad. I was pretty upset and emotionally a wreck.....thus this poem.
I blow out the candles and watch the lights flicker.
Its my first birthday without him.
He meant so much to me.
I smile and laugh for the sake of my family.
I won't let them see my pain.
Some tears, a few failures, and the pain is lessened.
Her eyes hold the story of a fatherless daughter.
I miss him, yet I hate him.
I despise him for loving me, then dashing my trust to the pavement.
There is no escape from bitterness.
Let it go.
It won't help you.
I can't trust.
Everybody will hurt me.
