They wont listen

Updated on August 2, 2012

A fathers Fight

Through laws and courts

I must fight

Where so-called saviours

Dismiss your plight

Just ticking boxes

They don't care

But on your scalp I've found grey hair

Ticked boxes won't change your fate

They will not act

Till it's too late

She has no say

She's just a child

They preach to me all through the trial

Your granted contact, your a good man

Said Biblically as they wash their hands

They heard your fears they're all on file

Where Angels weep

And evil smiles

      Thank you Pamela,

      These poems are not just written for me to release my emotions through this terrible experience, but also for my daughter when she is grown up so she will know how I felt and what actions I took to ensure her happiness and future.

      I'm in total agreement with the comment by timthechirpinbyrd above. It is so difficult for a man to express himself honestly. It's amazing how you are doing this so poetically and so from the heart.

      I know dealing with the court system can be really difficult and very painful when you are trying to be a good parent. I wish you and your child the best.

      It's hard for a man to openly express himself. It's even harder for man to be honest with his feelings. I can't help but admire your poem. I hope that whatever you're going through, works in your favor. You're a good man.

      "Where angels weep and evil smiles"--gave me chills. Sounds like you are going through a tough time, and I wish you and your daughter the best and that everything works out. I'm glad you can express yourself in your poetry. It's very powerful. I'm sharing this one.
