A Father's Gift - Poem by April Humason

I was unhappy with my life at 12
You came along and made happiness arise
I thought of death as a easier place
You showed me earth is hard but worth the fight
I hated everything cause of all the screaming and fist fights
You showed me love can be pure and peaceful
I had nothing but the clothes on my back
You gave me everything especially a chance at living
I was struggling about a dad job in life
You thrived at the role of a dad
I got a gift of a happy family
You got the penalty of raising another daughter.
