Where Were You

Poetry By: SGBanks

This poem is for the people who grew up without a father and even those who grew out without a mother. Not many can say they are raised by both parents. If you are consider yourself truly blessed. Spending time now and then with your parents will create memories that wil last forever. In the future you will be sharing those memories with your kids.
And shout out to CutiePie17 who gave me the idea for my last line. Thanks to you, you helped me complete this poem. Just know you have a fan in me.

Where were you when I needed you most

When my birthdays came

You didnt send one gift, card, or note

All I would do is sit and cry by the window pane

Where were you when things got rough?

And mom couldnt pay the rent

You ran when things got tough

While mom was smart and strong enough to make things click

Where were you for my biggame?

I scored the winning point in the last round

They even called my name

But your pressence was nowhere to be found

Where were you when I got accepted into the best college in the state

Mom threw me a party

But you couldnt make it cause she said your schedule had you working late

Do u expect me to believe that hardly

Where were you when I got a major job and up on my own two feet

Oh wait thats right at my door

Begging and pleading to stay with me

You was kicked out your house with nothing but your name and nothing more

Why should I show sympathy

You was never there for us

After all this time all you can say is sorry

But like all you have to earn my trust

But just know sorry could never be a parent to me

You want me to forget in this time and age

But wat u done has left too many scars

Just for me to turn the page

*To future fathers please know that a kid can have a baby, but it takes a man to raise one*
