For My Father


Do you love me? Do you care? Does it matter what's on my mind? Will you be here when I'm gone? Who am I? Why am I? I don't understand. Tell me, explain, because it makes no sense! What is my point? Why am I here? Do I mean anything? You say I'm beautiful, is that the truth? Inside I'm so lonely and scared, depressed and angry, sad and miserable. WHY!? I don't get it! I want to be happy but why aren't I!? Tears roll down my cheeks as I try to figure this out! You leave and come back. What is your problem? I've done all I can and you still don't love me! You say you do but I know you don't. What did I do to you? How is it my fault? I just want to be loved by you. Is that too much to ask? Guess so.

I'm human. I'm a mom and wife. My stories have molded me into who I am today. Writing gives me my outlet I can't express verbally.
