I try to lie to myself
And convince me that I donít care
When I see the disappointment
In my ďDaddyísĒ stare
I donít get why he doesnít love me
Though Iíve tried to make him proud
The emotion Iím feeling is strong
But I fear voicing it out loud
Because that would make it real
And Iíd finally have to face the flame
The burning that I failed my hero
And thereís no where to place the blame
I used to be his baby
He use to smile at me
Now he hates me without shame
Iím trapped with nowhere to flee
My grades couldnít be better
My teachers are prouder than him
So my heart has been torn in half
And my patience is worn thin
Iím tired of waiting for an answer
Iím tired of crying every night
Everyday is another losing battle
Another pointless fight
The feeling of rejection
Sits deep down within my soul
I feel it hot, and relentless
And waiting to unfold
It wants to unleash its wrath
Upon my father and his ways
But I know I cannot let it go
Inside me it must stay
Most girls my age are troubled
By the ends and starts
Of relationships with boys
But not me, No.
My Daddy broke my heart.

------- Author's Notes -------

My Dad doesnt love me.
