Seeking Your Approval

Many years
Seeking your approval
Of me
Many tears
Fallen from my eyes
Everytime I was denied
All I asked
All I wanted
Was to be appreciated
And shown love
Because I'm your daughter
My loyalty to you was
Solid like good wood
Not a time
Nor a day
Have I not been there
And my presence
Has been my fare
Never have I asked for anything
With my hand out
Nor any reward in return
Money, cars, a house
Can't love me back
Only you can...
Only you can return my love
I've reached the point
Of giveing up
My feelings
Can no longer be hurt
Heart hardened
as the result
Afriad no more
To walk away
Nor look in reverse
Anger is forceing the ship to leave the shore
Pages ripped
Papers tore
Of the years
I knew before
Lying to myself
Putting away truth
Upon disbelief shelf
I remained quiet
Festering hurt
Dying soul
Buried in dirt
Given you my all
Including my shirt
Yet, you continue
To be my offender
I tried to be a forgiver
But I can't anymore
I've became too bitter
Many years enduring
Cheap shots &
Emotional blows
Have left me scorned
Festering like a sliver
Heart became cold
Hard as stone
Seed of angers
You planted and sown
Grew an orchard
Once thriving
Now grows mold
