Mother gave birth to me.
Father saw me be born.
How can he not care
That I am so torn?
I wanted him here;
In my life,
But instead he took off
With his new wife.
He always makes promises,
Which he ends up breaking.
It just allows my heart
To continue aching.
But I'm fine, I guess.
All is well.
Mother works hard
While father says, "Farewell."

My family
