Dead to me

I'm sorry that I can't be
The son you always wanted
Who can't do a single thing right
I apologize for not acting like you would
When I get b**** slapped by life
I'm sorry that I do nothing more
Than disappoint you
I've tried and tried and tried to much
There's nothing more to do
You say you've loved me countless times
But I can't bring myself to believe any of it
Made me feel stupid with every conversation
Instead of talking me straight through it
It's true, you don't know how I think
And I believe you'll never know
I can't be approached any kind of way
I'm not your mental hoe
I'd kiss your feet for raising me
But you failed to do that right
Your words make up the reasons
I cry myself to sleep at night
You insist that you're my dad
Yet haven't helped me at all
You're only there to chastise
When my back's against the wall
I say I have no father now
And you don't have a son
Don't regret my uniqueness gone from your life
You'll never find another one
