Poem: Why Dad Why?

The Betrayal

We had such a wonderful family

We were so happy

I never thought anyone could tear our family apart

I never thought anyone could come between you and mom

I thought your marriage could overcome any problems

Your love for each other was so strong

I thought it would last forever

You and mom were so happy

Or so I thought,

You said "there's nothing more important than your family"......

So please tell me why?

Why dad why?

Why have you torn our family apart?

Why did you betrayed us?

Why have you wrecked this family dad?

I thought you were happy with mom

Now you want to break up our happy home.......

Who is this woman? how can she be so cruel?

Doesn't she know you have a family?

Doesn't she know what she is doing to this family?

Or does she care.......

I hate you dad!

I hate this woman who has come into our lives

Messing up our happy home

I never want to see your sorry face again

You are not my father, no not anymore

I wish I could change my name

Erase all memories of you

Pretend I never knew you.......

It hurts so bad, oh how it hurts

I'm so devastated by this betrayal

I cannot even begin to think what mom is going through

You and her children were her world

She loved and adored you

She treated you like a King

What more did you want?.......

I thought you loved her,

I thought you loved us

You said you did

I guess it was just a lie

You said "I don't understand"

No! I don't, I never will understand

I hate you dad, you and this home wrecker......

Life it too short to hold grudges. Shit happens. Life sucks. But life goes on. People grow apart. Take what you learn and use it.

That may be true bit it still doesn't stop the hurt and the pain...a child doesn't understand why something like this has to happen...most times it is the children who hurt the most.
