If this is who you really are, then I want you far…
If this is what a father is, then I never want one…
You abandon me in my time of need,
Left me with nothing to eat…
I had to survive on my own two feet…
All the money you had, and still you treated me so bad…
You’re the worst dad, and that makes you so glad!!!
What comes around goes right around…
I hate when you yell, I hate that sound!!!
I looked for you and hell is what I found!
I should of been your princess with a crown
instead, you treated me like I was your clown..
Betrayed me and left me with a frown!!

Look at my tears, what about my fears?
You can’t help me anymore, Don’t even try, what for?
I hate what you have done to me!
I use to be so weak, I was afraid to ever speak…
Now I have found strength and I’m not afraid…
I’m not afraid of telling you to leave.
You are my dad just by name, because of you I will never be the same…
You are insane and that’s how you will remain.
My mom is good, she’s not the one to blame…
She had to play your roll as a dad…
You were never there, she was always so fair…
