If you saw me on the street,
Would you stop and talk to me,
Or would you walk right past me,
A stranger you didn’t see.

I often think of you,
Do you ever think of me?
One day I hope we meet,
You’ll be so proud of me.

I want to share so much with you,
Like all my favorite things.
There’s so many things we could do,
So much you haven’t seen.

Fourteen years ago,
You left her all alone,
Not even born then,
How could you let us go?

I always wondered,
Why my daddy wasn’t there,
Mommy says you love me,
And that you care.

So do you ever think of me,
The way I think of you?
Mommy says I look like you,
I wonder if its true,
Don’t you?

Time goes by so fast,
I’m growing everyday,
I’m starting to look different,
That’s why I wonder everyday.

If you saw me on the street,
Would you stop and talk to me,
Or would you look right past me,
Your own daughter, that you didn’t see?

I absolutely love this. Just a few hours ago, my dad whom I haven't seen in more than eleven years texted me asking if he could call me. But i got scared and said no. It made me think about all the things that you wonder about in this poem. Amazing job

This is really good. It's raw emotion, and I can't help but imagine myself in your shoes. There's just this feeling you get when you read words that have been poured out straight from a soul. I got that feeling just now. Keep writing your truth, you're really good at it :)

Goodness! this gave me the chills! i love this! i love how you refer to your parents as "Mommy" and "Daddy". It gives the poem such an innocent and helpless tone and i just love everything about this!

This is really really good!! The amazing thing is, is that I could feel the same emotions while I was reading that were conveyed in the poem, even though I've never been in this situation. That takes skill on the author's part to be able to reach audiences that haven't shared similar experiences. 5/5 stars!

Life is a maybe. Death is for sure. Sin is the cause. Christ is the cure. :)

Love is the breath of God, and prayer is the melody that makes it sing.

If you cant annoy someone, there's no point in writing.

Love is overrated, marry for money.

I really like this! Great job! 5/5!
