Daddy really no excuse

By , New Orleans, LA
When he looked into her eyes everything was ok
Until she did the smallest thing to make the hair on
The back of his neck stand up soon as that action happen she
Would run like a three year old child would from a belt
Just to protect her self he would severely place his palms
To her brown skin then laugh and tell his friends
Right in front of his children and then he expects me to accept
The want to be father role he presents to me and then not to mention
He never ever fancied me and I’m the result of my moms and this same man
Making experience happen well this is why my pops is going through
Drugs abuse and he misuses the ones who love him because it’s true when
The bible says you reap what you sew he never ever beat my mother and
He did something even worse by leaving her alone with a baby standing
At the metro stop and also he broke a promise he made when they laid but
Then he wonders why his love feels like a blade to my sisters and I
Well daddy please don’t call my phone anymore saying what you should have done when you still have time to stop your daughters souls from crying so stop trying and just do it start out with loving yourself and putting GOD in your fast agenda so I could have a good father to remember
