I never had a dad, but I'm not mad, because of what I never had. I got over it and moved on positively anyway.

A dad,
I never had,
I use to be really mad,
at times really sad,
because I had,
no dad.


No dad since age nine,
it's a miracle I managed a strong spine.
It was really hard,
with no dad to help me start.
Life beat me pretty good,
until I finally understood.
Even then it was difficult,
disaster almost still a result.


After all the years,
through all the fears,
shedding many a tears,
I still miss my dad,
but I'm over being mad.


No dad was just a part of my F'd up life.
I almost drowned from all my strife.


My earthly father,
never did bother,
but my heavenly father,
did bother.


Amen.


G

Such a travesty of so very many--i am sorry. I am a teacher of emotionally diturbed children many of whom suffer for the lack of their fathers--if they only knew how very important they are to these kids-anyway, good heartfelt write

Grady this is sad and so powerful. I had a dad, but he was never home. So I guess I never had one either. If only dads knew how much their children needed them. I applaud you for all your accomplishements without him. Have a blessed Christmas Grady. Floria

Quite profound; and... I can certainly relate. My mom kicked my dad out when I was six. You go, man! -- Jeff
