A poem to my father.

Because of you I'm broken
You used to love me so.
Because of you, there's everything
I had to let go.
I used to be so happy,
Daddy what did I do?
Suddenly there was nothing I did,
That was good enough for you.
You left me crying, broken
you left me black and blue
Your fists aren't easy, daddy,
You hurt my feelings too.

Because of you I'm stronger now.
Its like a brand new me.
Because of you its over now.
I refuse to be beat.
You might be stronger with your fist,
your really weak inside,
Behind your anger and your hate,
You had some place to hide.

I may have had to hide from you
You may have thought you won..
But daddy take a look at me.
I'm standing in the sun.


My dad used to beat me. It's been weighing on my mind. So I wrote a poem just to get it out... Sometimes poetry is the best way for me to vent. Excuse any typos. If I see any ill fix it. When I write poetry I have to keep going or I lose my place.
