The other sides shame

Updated on September 13, 2012

This was written many months ago when me and my daughter were first torn apart, and is not how I am feeling now, but is a piece that reflects the turmoil and thoughts that go through so many peoples heads when life can seem impossible, but there is always love.

The other sides shame

The ways to leave this cruel place
Are always on my mind
The bridge , a rope or Stanley
So simple but unkind

To all the ones who love me
And could I stand the pain
Of looking from the other side
With an eternal shame

Of leaving a sweet child
Wandering lost in this cold world
Believing she's not good enough
No longer Daddy's girl

So I stand up tall against the pain
To make our future bright
As you're love always finds the way
To make it through the night

      Heart breaking. :( Reminds me of the song Zoe Jane by Stained. Children need their fathers and I hope you are able to be with her again.

      A very difficult situation to have to go through and endure. Your poem expresses it all so painfully. In His Love, Faith Reaper
