I don’t know what it’s like

Losing a parent to

The claws of death

Or to some scary disease

That you don’t know anything about

I do know what it’s like

To have a parent walk out

To never see them again

I don’t remember much

From when you left

All I know is what

I’ve been told

But I learned

That you weren’t as nice

As you say

That you actually were an

Ungrateful a**

I was happy to see you

That day in court

But when I saw that

You had a new daughter

Who was only a few

Years younger

It shattered my body

Made me understand

That you didn’t care

Didn’t actually love me

And my mom

No matter what you said to me

Telling me that it was “Okay”

And that you “Love me”

There was no way I could believe you

I knew that it was all fake

To me,

It was as if you

Didn’t own a heart

Tat you didn’t care

About the “Other” family

It makes me happy

Happy that I wrote that letter

All that time ago

Glad that you called

At least acting like you

Cared

Even if you didn’t

It’s odd

Now that after all these years

I still write about you

When maybe

Probably

You’ve forgotten all about

That small girl you left

Behind

They do say that what doesn’t kill you

Makes you stronger

And you

You have made me

Stronger

So thanks,

Thanks for walking

Out on me
