Parents love their children - it's like breathing in and out,
When reality proves otherwise, the result is shame and doubt.
Self-confidence falls short, whence a Father disregards,
Self-esteem collapses like a flimsy house of cards.
Weaned upon rejection - warmth and love in short supply,
What lengths a daughter stretches - to earn her Daddy's eye.
Shine the shoes and drag the clubs - for him she'd learn to fly,
Throw tricks that kids with safety nets would never think to try!
Declining to pay child support ensured financial tribulation,
Having kids to clothe and feed - just a source of irritation.
A charismatic ladies man demanding adulation,
Prioritizing golf and sex - and a much-deserved vacation!
Reality struck like lightning - on a warm day one July,
When the car that hit her broadside would leave her there to die!
Hospitalized for days on end, laying broken and afraid,
Words cannot convey the pain - at the coldness he displayed!
Now any parent reading this will share in her despair,
Of that instant realization that he truly didn't care!
With bladder bruised and missing teeth, and seven bones a-broken,
No card, no call, no visit - condolences unspoken!
