The Man He Never Was
Lack of a father figure while growing up.
Never bothered me, because I had a back-up.
My grandpa showed me what a real man is.
Now I can't wait until I have kids. My father was selfish,
all he ever did was set bids.
I'm 13 years old, and my dad is back in my life.
Everybody deserves a second chance, but I guess I was too
nice. My heart since has been as cold as ice.
I'm 17 years old, a senior in high school.
Writing scholarships, so I don't turn out like you know who.
Stressing over where I should go to college and where I will gain the most knowledge.
The day he walked out, was the day I decided I would never pout.
I give 100%, and try to support my family,
because he never did.
One word that describes me, would have to be determined.
My family says that my dad would have just been a burden.
