    I don't know my father.

    He has been incarcerated since I was born. I sucks because it's difficult to ask about him without bringing up unwanted issues from the past.

    I didn't talk to him

    for five years leading up to his death at age 57. He was in a coma and I saw him and said my last words to him. Probably the most raw, emotional moment in my life. I don't know how aware a person can be in that state. But there was a tear in his eye and many more in mine. I like...

    He Lives With Me, But I Don't Care

    I refuse to talk to him. I have no reason to ever forgive him for the things he has said and done to my entire family, not only put us through stress beyond belief, but all the pain my mom has gone through because of him. He is the worst human being I have ever met. A waste of...

    Haha. Just what I was thinking.

    My father consistently calls my phone, don't know how he got my number, then iOS 7 came along I blocked him completely. I just can't forgive him for abandoning his child (me) and not being in my life for important events. Yet I'm the only one of his kids that are actually...

    The barren and the wondering soul loses his

    state of mind. He walks far away from any sign of human kind. He reaches for a leading role but grasps empty air. This pain inside is beyond compare Oh father where are you now Did you fall When I left did you drown In alcohol

    He's so judgmental and just rude.

    He has absolutely no respect for people. He constantly looks at men and says "wow, he looks like a homo." Or "ew, they were gay, I wanted to slap them." He judges people on how much they eat, how much they talk, how tall or short they are. It makes me wonder what he...

    Two Worlds

    I love my daddy to death. I am a daddy's girl. He loves me more than anything. I'm his only child. But we don't have a relationship. If that makes sense. It's awkward to be the only one in the room with my dad. We don't talk about anything. How do I get closer to him?
