Summary

My dad was my whole life until he was no longer there and I was sent to foster care. I couldn't understand why someone who meant more to me than anyone else would hurt me so bad. So I read the poem.

Chapter 1

Ever since I was small

You told me to stand tall

You told me not to sweat the petty

And everything is petty

You told me that you'd always care

And that you would always be there

You told me you'd never lie

Now I don't see why

Maybe you think I'm still a little kid

And can't understand all the things you did

You treat me like I'm only two

Then again you treat me like I'm ninety-two

What you think you know,

But you really don't know

Is that my life surely blows

All I have is God

And some days it's all I can do to nod

You have me so tightly wrapped

I'm suffocating in your trap

What you don't realize is how bad you've hurt me

And you may need new glasses'Cause you're to blind to see

You have me under your spell

And you must do magic'Cause you knew how to do it well

You have always been the one wearing the crown

I don't even know which way is down

I can't think

Every thing just sinks

You tell me not to worry

But dad, all good things in life leave in a hurry

The end of summer

Will be a bummer

For the choice will be made

The law will be laid

Will I stay in foster care?

Or will I be left in your care?

What do I want?

I'll just be blunt

I HAVE NO F-ING CLUE!
