A Father Should Love


A father is someone you run to
A loving person that will hold you like glue
A father is someone that will care
And he is always has wisdom to share
A father is a person that will encourage
Someone that will give you courage
He should kiss a knee if you scrape it
Even if it is just a little slit
He should be there to guide you
Someone that will stick with you all the way through
A father should me there for you
I love my father with all my heart
Someone that I’ve loved at the start
But I’m afraid of my father
Some people ask why I even bother
I try to reach to him and bring him back
But that is when he will attack
So I go alone ready to cry
Too afraid of this one lone guy
I sit alone because of what he did
And everyone knows what he did to his kid
I ‘m alone and dream of a day
That life itself won’t be so gray
I think of what he did to me
But then I realize that I’m finally free

    Heather, you asked if I would take a look at your poetry as you were new, Ive not been here long myself! You show a lot of sensitivity and I like the way you go from warm love to cold fear. I hope this is not autobiographical - and if if is, I offer you love and healing and hope that you find the inspiration and support to get you through. On a more critical level, I would just comment that I was brought up in a time where spelling HAD to be correct, though I am prone to a touch of mis-spelling myself, I do try to check the spelling 'all the way threw' should read all the way through, its not a terrible thing, but I find it awfully distracting. Don't give up writing and best of luck.

    It's a conundrum, your damned either way. If you pretend this is not happening your calous and naive. If you go for it your being reactionary. Good ploy. The knee thing. A few other hints of blarney. If your b.s.ing you got to be heartless. (Report) Reply

    I have an intuitive twitch that I'm being gamed. I'm being conned here......it's the way the lines come together. Just a hunch. (Report) Reply
