This poem is about my feelings toward my "biological father" (he was never a father to me)

For years

I've hated you.

Now after all these years

I don't know how to feel about you.

 

I've always been shadowed

By what you did.

Now I have a better understanding

Of why you might have done what you did.

 

You were hurt

When you were just a kid.

So you went and hurt

Your own kid.

 

You knew from when you were young

That it wasn't right to do.

Yet you didn't learn from when you were young

That it was a thing you shouldn't do.

 

For years

I've hated you.

Now after all these years

I don't know how to feel about you.

 

I'm not sure

Whether to continue hating you,

Or if I should

Give up my anger and feel sorry for you.

 

Anger is hard to release

After so many years.

I just want to release

All of my pent up emotions from over the years.

 

Do I want to pity you

For what happened to you as a kid?

Or do I want to continue hating you

For what you did to your own kid?

 

For years

I've hated you

Now after all these years

I don't know how to feel about you.
