    dotsLetters to a father who was never there.dots

    where were you for all those years?
    I once thought you a hero,
    the one who would chase away my nightmares and
    the soother of my fears.

    don't bother coming home
    me and mommy are doing fine on our own.
    it is too late for you to say that you love me
    for 10 years now mommy has made sure that i was happy.

    do you ever think of me?
    the little girl that i used to be,
    i hope you hate yourself for missing out on so many years,
    so daddy this is the end i will shed no more tears.

    i thought i wanted you to be at my 16th birthday
    but i got to thinking that maybe i just want you to stay away
    you had plenty of chances that you didn't take,
    so daddy don't bother thinking of me because i won't accept
    an apology all those years you missed were all your mistake.

      Wow, that was really well written. I can kind of relate. I still live with my parents, but neither one of them talk to me that much. If my mother talks to me she calls me "Girl". My dad just doesn't talk to me at all. Last summer, I spent the whole summer vacation without my dad saying anything to me. yeah, so i have a happy little family.
    For you to be so strong about this is empressive. Mostly you would get the person who at the end would beg for their father to come back. You told him to stay where he was, you and your mother is fine without him.
    I think you should try free verse. You have a lot to say and I think the poem would be really good if you tried. Well I'm done now.
