Daddy issues

You made me feel,

Like there was nothing I could achieve.

 

And all my dreams,

We’re too far out of reach.

 

You broke me down,

And watched me cry.

 

And didn’t even care,

When I tried to die.

 

You told me my pain wasn’t real,

And that I was a liar.

 

But you didn’t realize,

That your words burnt me like fire.

 

You made me feel,

As if I was nothing.

 

And no matter how hard I tried,

I could never be something.

 

How could I ever call you My father,

When all you do is make me sad.

 

How can I be your daughter,

When you make me feel so bad.

 

You claim that my pain isn’t real,

And that I don’t know true despair.

 

When deep down I’m dying,

But you still don’t even care.

 

You ignored my cries,

And said I’d be alright.

 

Everyday was a battle,

And in the end I almost lost my fight.

 

But you never cared

or asked me why,

 

The truth is you’re the reason,

Why I want to die.
