I’ve been cheated,
I’ve lived lies that I was told were true.
But that will never be enough for you.
I’ve learned for you,
I have cried for you,
there is nothing that I wouldn’t do for you.
But you go on,
while I stand here.
I’m waiting for you,
just waiting for your hand to reach mine,
But that day will never come.
Im lost, stranded, stuck in the past,
because when I lost you,
I lost my innocence,
my sanity.
and nothing can compare to this pain.
I still breath for you,
I live for you,
and I have smiled for you.
I am apart of you,
I am one made from love,
derived from lust.
Created from clay,
and sculpted from society.
I’ve been f***ed over enough.
I am your daughter.
To this, I give to you,
I lost you,
I love you.
To this, my father.
