Your words slice through me-Like a slap across the face Saying I shouldn't talk-Shouldn't be born in the first place

Go gossip to your friends-complain about my attitude Put down all my hobbies-how I never show gratitude

Go ahead, support my case That when we're face to face We don't see eye to eye I don't deserve this name

A mockery of my emotions; You enjoy playing with my head Showcasing my faults and issues- Product of a father's neglect

Self harm and anxiety, I wonder where that arouse from? Accusations and complaints, when did I get so numb?

Prove the "rogue-dad" steroetype with every word you say With everything you do, ensure I'll be the one to leave some day

Go ahead, support my case That when we're face to face We don't see eye to eye I don't deserve this name

I hide in my room, hush myself to sleep Anxious, schizophrenic, suicidal freak

Dread all encounters with "The Rage and Fury" Right hook to the face, my vision's kind of blurry

Same questions over and over again all asking why? What does he see that I can't with his father's eye?
