Today a man left my life 7 years ago.
After all the lies he spewed into my young heart,
it so surprises me that I remember anything one could consider good.
Good, hard to speak of good and Bruce in the same line.
Taking the only sources we have to survive,
left my mother and I by ourselves and feeling bitter.
This man was but not a man
a man would never do the things this male did.
A man is brave, strong and independant.
This man was furious, hateful, weak and dependant.
Dependant on a 5 letter felony and the earning of others.
Finally my mother was able to fight her fears
and stop the tears and she pushed this man away.
Every gift he gave to me, he stole it back behind my naive back.
Every promise he ever whispered, was snatched while I slept.
A loving father I never had.
A man who chose his death over his life is the only man I knew.
And now it's time to say goodbye,
the man i'm talking about is you..........Dad
