Dear Father

Dear father
Why have you left us
Here without shelter
And filled with pain?


Dear father 
Why did you show us 
No love and no mercy 
And let our little hearts bleed in fear?

Here I am without you 
Standing all alone in the rain 
Blows beat against my back 
With no protection

You weren’t around 
When I needed you most 
If I needed you last 
You never showed your face

Who are you? Where are you? 
Why do I even care to know about you? 
Ever since you sent chills down my sister’s spine 
And hit my mother with a stick 
Your family you cared no less 
And brought us into this world with much disgrace.
