The Unloved Child
Not loved by their actions or by words;
Parent is only a word without definition.
Father…mother… where are you now?
What were you when you were here?
Am I an unloved child, unworthy, ugly;
Or are you simply irresponsible jerks.
I look in the mirror, and I see a tear falling;
But I also see a beautiful little girl, worthy.
Why did you leave me? Why do you hate me?
What did I ever do to deserve this treatment?
You will not see me ever cry,
No, I won't give you the satisfaction.
You are the ones who are worthless;
Thinking that procreation was your right.
Responsibility comes with rights, don't you know.
I wonder if you ever think about me;
I wonder is you now even care even a tiny bit.
Do you think about anyone at all;
Or are you so self absorbed, no one else matters?
I'm now growing up without you, without your love;
I'm doing alright, but I know you don't care.
Wondering why I even bother with the anger;
The thought occurs to me…
I hate you!
Screaming at the top of my lungs…
Under my breath, quietly;
I love you… but I'll never tell you this.
