Paul....My Biological Dad

I never really knew you
So I can't make the leters of your name
Into a funny little game
I spent so long hating you
But now I'm through
I can't have you
I don't need you
Hating hurts too much
It wastes my precious time
I've accepted that you are you
And me for me
I'm not calling you Dad
Cause you haven't earned it at all
So your name is Paul
Paul I don't hate you
I don't love you
You are you
And I am me
Maybe that's the way it is supposed to be

The author's comments:
I used to really hate Paul I just was mad at him because he wasn't in my life but it wasn't right. It didn't make me happy, it just made me miserable. I wanted to hurt him the way he had hurt me. I don't hate him anymore, I'm apathetic. I just don't care. I have people that love me and I love them. It is futile to hate him, and I feel much better not hating him.
