Happy Valentines Day


Sometimes I feel

Like a fatherless child

Sometimes I feel

Like a fatherless child

And sometimes I feel

Like a fatherless child

A long…long way…from home


Now THIS is a story all about how, my life's BEEN flipped turned upside down. And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there and I'll tell you how it really FEELS to be the princess of a man never there


Sometimes I FEEL..... like a fatherless child


You don't know what it's like to not FEEL your father's love

So you search here and you search there so you won't FEEL alone
that searchin leads to fuckin and that fuckin leads to cryin 
Cuz you ain't use no condom
And the boy? Oh you can't find em, he's a liar and he'll never be your father or a father to his daughters, oops wait a minute that's..... MY father.
So you're back to square one
Desperately clinging to any masculine figure
to validate your poor soul
But they never intend to claim you, they want cake, a drink and to shake and bake 
Then like your father.. escape.
B/c the only closest way to feel the warmth of your fathers love
Is the cum in your vagina that a dick can shove
But even after the dick
You're just another chick
Who's father is absent
And kept you from being abstinent
All for the sake of that fatherly love
And no matter how tightly you cling to your phone
On social media to flatter 
searching for love on a platter  
Psssst You'll forever be alone
With a void for warmth


Who’s got a shoulder when I need to cry

I feel restless and I don’t know why

Cry for help, but I still feel alone

Like a fatherless child along way from home

Lord I’m lost I can’t find my way

I’m dealing with the struggles in my day to day

My soul is weak and I wanna be strong

I try to run away but I’ve been running too long


This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
