( Knowing why just helps reduce your cry. )

Why you don't want me dad


If you did I sure would be glad


However because you don't it makes me mad


Then I get sad


When I was younger your ignoring use to make me bad


I lashed out in anger


Then I became a danger


To every freaking disrespectful stranger


I wanted to beat them all


Cause I needed a punching bag to help recall


A f 'd up life


Full of misery and strife


One day


I heard a family member say


"Your father didn't want you,"


It took me some years to figure out if this was true


When I finally accepted my fate


It was almost to late


But I pulled myself together


And got out of bad weather


Now in my older years


I don't shed many more tears


I finally understand a simple group of words


"Your father didn't want you."


Now I know this is really true


You have never went out of your way


In anyway


To say


Nothing or do nothing for your defense


Now I really take this to offense


But I understand the full pretense


I don't worry anymore


Neither am I sore
