    Wish Homer Simpson Were My Dad

    *sigh* I'm having a hard time with all this joyous father's day/daddy's little princess bullshit. It seems everywhere I look, there are happy families whose patriarch isn't a rageful, narcissistic, abusive sadist. Like my father. He's still alive; we're estranged and tomorrow...

    Today, my grief runs very deep,

    overflowing at the top like a bottomless pit, in infinite circles. My heart is at its heaviest in my chest. When I get up, I can barely stand so I lay back down with my handkerchief with moist eyelashes and a running nose.

    And My Step Dad Is Going To Church With Me Tomorrow!

    EXCITED!!Not. I am not going to sit by him. Watch him try to pull some fatherly ****. Like when they say hug your "fathers" or something I dare my step dad to try and come near me. I will yes- openly reject him. He is not my dad. No one will or has ever been my dad. It's too late...

    Father's Day Is Not For Me ...

    ... It's for good men who have been good fathers and good examples to their children. I am weak, selfish, and evil. I have treated my children's mother badly and dishonestly. How can a liar and cheat be a good father? How can a man who doesn't honor his partner be a good...

    My Dad Liked His Biscuit

    I bought my father a biscuit at Hardee’s. I love him very much. He loved his biscuit and asked it was homemade. I told him, “no,” that I had bought it at Hardee’s. He said, “Oooooh! They make good biscuits!” I know he likes biscuits from...

    Father's Day

    It will be Father’s Day here very soon, and it looks as though I will not see my daughters again on it this year, and that saddens me and also makes me so angry, I went to the mail box today, and there were a number of catalogues there, with many containing advertisements for...

    Painful Month/day For Me Too...

    Father's Day is never happy for me either. My mom and dad parted when I was about four. I never heard from him, and sadly I had no memories of him either... Good nor bad, just void. Then when my sister married in 2000 she told me she invited our dad. I was in shock, I'd heard...

    Parents Create Rifts

    I am not saying all children that come from homes of divorce go through this same experience, but there are far to many. When one parent or the other use the children as pawns. So all of you moms out there who have done this to your kids, you should be ashamed. Every child...

    I Won't See Them

    It is father’s day here this Sunday, and for some reason, I had gotten it wrong I had been thinking all week that it was next week. And that there was another week to try and negotiate with my ex to see my daughters, but I got it wrong. I’m sitting here, it’s 9:10pm...

    Don'T Celebrate It Anymore :(

    The reason why I don't celebrate it anymore is because my dad died when I was just ten years old. He died a few weeks before Christmas from complications of a stroke. I've thought about him a lot lately. That was the worst day of my life and as a kid you think your parents live...

    Father's Day tomorrow

    and this would be year number four since my father left this world. We were never big on it as a day of catch up but I work in retail and it is 'pull out the stops' retail season, part of my job is to entice people to to our products and give them to Dad with love. My Dad lived...
