Army Dad

When I was young my Dad left
And in my heart I wanted to blame him or the theft
Of how I was always so hard and strict
On myself and on other people like I just flicked
The perspective of who people are right off my mind
He is a great dad even though he left me behind
I understood why he had o go to the army
It was for himself and for his own harmony
In his life, he realized he wanted to go
But through all this time he didn’t want it to show
I want to blame him for leaving
But every time he left, I got a sick feeling
in my gut but I know he’d always come back to me
And the next time was always permanently
But … just cause he’s an army dad
Does not mean he is a bad dad!!
