Hey Dad.

Hey Dad
Im getting five today
And I know that you gonna be there
And I know well have some fun today
So see you soon when you get here
I love you

Hey Dad
My 10th birthday was cool
Was different with you not being there
I hope we can celebrate soon
We still got some cake to share
I got new toys!
Can we play with them?
I know well have fun
Tell me, when will you come again?
In how many months?
I miss you

Hey Dad!
Wheres your fucking face?
You send a present, huh?
And you send a letter, thanks.
Your presence would be better though
Remember my sister?
Shes your daughter too
Did you know that she has cancer?
Doesnt seem like its touching you.
For you just having left her.
Fifteen years you left me alone
I dont know what a father can mean
And still you wonder why I blocked your phone
And we dont properly speak.
My anger is suffocating my health
I dont think we should talk any longer
Greetings to your family from your girls
Unluckily were still your daughters.

Hey Dad.
Im 17 now.
I have new friends.
I figure how life goes.
I make new plans.
Id say I hate you
But how do you hate a shadow?
A shallow memory, in my mind
Data nowhere to be found.
You said well reconcile.
I couldnt believe you.
Youre stubborn in your head
I cry when Im near you.
You send a letter, thanks.
Your words were empty.
Thank you for the cash.
At least its purpose I can choose freely.
Its been a while since we spoke.
Your words still cut deep.
Not just because they hurt
But how ignorant they seem.
I want to be mad you left us
But I dont think youd understand.
Youre coming twice a year to her grave
But when she died never held her hand.
Dear father,
Why forgive you?
Why should I take more pain for your time?
Dear father,
I dont miss you.
At least right now Im feeling fine.
Maybe in the future.
Maybe therell be a day.
When my anger comes to standstill.
And love sometimes will ease the pain.
But until that you remain a stranger.
Yours Kira.

Author's Note
Felt inspired by a Brandon Leak performance I saw. Nowadays it seems to be more of a surprise if your parents are still together than if theyre separated. My whole life Ive known nothing different than seeing my das only once a month or so. Its sad to see how many parents turn their backs on their children, how much hurt they cause the only persons that are willing to love them unconditionally. Its something I really cant understand.
