Fatherless Girl

4-21-05

I feel so sad

Everyone sees me

And they know

I'm just another one

Of those

Fatherless girls,

Hiding in the shadows

From their critical eyes

And their pitying eyes

And their long pointing fingers

So self-conscious

Never wanting to be

deticated to: my dad based on growing up I was the only girl I knew with divorced parents. and other children I didnt know would come up to me and say "I hear you dont have a dad, I'm sorry." ALl I ever wanted was to be like everyone else, to have what everyone else thought so normal.
