FATHERHOOD GONE AWRY!
Father's very strict, mother's very weak
Beatings too harsh for a daughter of only 3
You wished that I had died Daddy
You even said it out loud
but i loved you anyhow
Forbidden to walk on the carpet
I was just not good enough
I've tried to fulfill your wishes Daddy
Fifteen times I tried somehow
I ran under buses, in front of cars even.
I took hundreds of pills Daddy
I tried to cut my wrists,
Just to try to make you happy
Why didnt they work Daddy?
You never came to see
Why am I still here?
If only you had shown me
the love that I so richly deserved
My life would have been more content
and the men in my life would not
have continued the patterns you set
