My father said nothing


He did nothing


He showed nothing


He gave nothing


Into the night without a peep


Into the deep wallowing depths of murky water


Shingles and jingles ring in my head


Wiggles and giggles of summer time fun dead


Off to the races without a horse or snout


Off to the races without a doubt and clout


Money we had not –home we had barely


Peace, love tenderness –what's that ?


 


My father did nothing


As he walked out the door


As he unclaimed my momma


And denied me


 


My father did nothing as he packed up and left


He said nothing as he started another life and family


So now 25 years later only to discover


 


My father did everything


Yet he did it all


Because he donated


He gave –


Yes he did it all for his sperm has made me


He did it all has my mother's egg received with delight


 


But yet he did nothing has my mother stood her ground


Yes 25 years later only to discover


it was my mother who said goodbye –get out


You do nothing –you have nothing


You don’t provide clothes you don’t see your child


You bring no food you don’t play with your child


You want other women Fine but you cant have me at the SAME DAMN TIME


 


My child needs stability


If you want to see her provide for her


If you want to be father then grow up and and BE one


If not ...  goodbye …


25 years later it was all something


that came out of a nothing moment in time


that lasted and hour or less


25 years ago it was nothing


as I played with my toes only 851 days old


25 years later I am something
