Dear Dad,


Sometimes I wish I never met you.

1,000 miles used to be the only distance, 

But now we're quite through.

And yet, I still think about your existence.

I think about all the memories we shared,

About all the times you acted like you cared.

Those memories were ripped away when you chose a new family.

I tried to reconnect, but I’m not a priority.


Sometimes I wish I never met you.

You've brought so much damage,

More than I can even manage.

You're the man that caused emotional baggagee

in me, my mom, and my sisters too.


Sometimes I just wish we never met you.

Then the memories wouldn’t taunt me

And we wouldn’t feel so unworthy.

My family
