Father Please!

Father please,
Just like all the other dads,
Love me,
Like they love their daughters.
I know you hear me scream
When you scare me at night.
I try to dream,
But all you give me are terrors.
Don’t order another drink!
See my worry.
Please just think,
That there is something wrong.
Don’t drive the car
With me in it.
I know the house is not far,
But you are still intoxicated.
Don’t push me!
Please take your hands off your daughter.
Just look at me and you’ll see,
How I really feel.
When we get to the house,
Don’t take your anger out on me.
I am still your daughter.
Don’t knock me down onto my knees,
Make me feel wanted.
Let me know you love me,
Don’t make my life feel haunted.
Try to resist throwing phones
And trash talking family,
Breaking bones
And locking me in the room.
Don’t make your baby girl cry
And emotionally damage her mind.
She wants to say goodbye,
But I can not.
Take me to the mall,
Not bars
Where there is always a brawl.
You always threaten your little girl,
But not the drunk, older men that hit on her.
You come close and whisper in my ear,
I try to escape from your grasp,
You aren’t saying anything I want to hear.
Later in the night,
It’s always the same.
You always start a fight,
And make me hide away.
Don’t torture your little girl,
She is the last one you’ve got.
Give it a whirl!
Don’t make me wonder,
What I do wrong,
To make me feel the need to find a bed to go under.
Me and my constant need
To always feel loved,
Give into your greed.
