Not Your Little Girl

February 8, 2018

I was twelve years old 

when the fighting destroyed my family

without even a warning

I was young and dependent 

and he was strong and wise

little did i know my dad was full of lies

he made empty promises 

and he broke my heart

through many painful years

my life has fallen apart

now he drinks to numb his pain away 

while I have to endure intense pain everyday

I am now 16 years old

in this harsh , cold world

If you dont want to be a dad

I am not your little girl.

My family divorce really inspired me for this piece. The last four years have been the hardest for me because my dad really fell apart when my parents split and to see him so hurt really effects me.
