a STRENUOUS relationship we’ve shared
that’s because I’m born of your DNA
the direction of MY life and the experiences
I’ve ATTRACTED into my life are a direct result
of growing up in a house with YOU for 16 years
your ONLY daughter
I learned this behavior by OBSERVING you
you taught me to SEARCH for answers
you taught me how to STAND UP for what was right
or did you?
now I look back and wonder ...
except you probably would have preferred
I did so within the confines of your beliefs
b'cuz as soon as I started to ask questions
you shut down
because the questions I asked, questioned your beliefs
now here we are
some 40 years later
still here
still stuck in the same old FUCK'N rut
I only EVER wanted a Father
with who I could share CANDID & RAW conversations with
without the threat of ABANDONMENT
or having to wait YEARS to see your number appear on
my phone again
without judgement
just raw MUTUAL conversation
why can’t you GIVE me what I need?
I don’t care who is it RIGHT or WRONG
what I’m in search of is the TRUTH
I see you in church
I hear you RECITE words
but do you REALLY know what they mean?
I WATCH
I LISTEN
I READ & STUDY
and from what I’ve DISCOVERED
the timing is crucial
there are things I NEED to talk to you about
I NEED you to listen to me
I want your FEEDBACK & your OPINION
I’m not making up shit 
you gave me life
open your heart
just a tiny bit
just this once
