Daddy Dearest

you were supposed to protect us you made us vulnerable. You was supposed to guide us you steered us off course, you were supposed to be our strength you made us weak. You were the enemy sleeping within. You lied ,cheated and worse and we bore the scars. thanks daddy dearest i bet you was one proud man.

oh i can forgive but these memories are etched like scars across my brain, i cant forget.

My father was like this, too -- still is. I always tell my sons, "You see that?" or, "Did you hear that?" "that's what a man / father should NOT do," "Never be like Papa."<br />

It works well. I also like to point out to them the kind men they can emulate. They get it.<br />

We have the power to forgive and forget -- no one can take that away from you.
