Father where are you?
I'm all alone.
Father i need you.
Where have you gone?

I feel forsaken in this cold dark world.
The world you've left me to wonder alone.
Dark shadows rise on either side.
You my protector, have left me here to die.

The shattered remains of my heart cries out,
Surrounded by confusion and doubt.
I seek answers but find none.
Darkness clouds my thoughts...

Why have you forsaken me?
Why have you you left me alone?
Do you even love me?
Do you see me as your own?

In the ashes of what could have been,
I sit covered in sadness and guilt.
My past i've spent without knowing you.
My future uncertain without you.

Do you see my pain?
Do you see my broken heart?
Can you hear my plea?
For a father to do his part??

I need you father...
I need you.
Come back to me
...and wipe these tears away...
Hey, i've finished it. Another one of my poems relating to the fatherless. Thought about my own father who left me years ago while writing this.
Hope this poem in some way can be some help to you people. If you like or somehow interested in this poem, check out another one i wrote entitled "To Fathers And The Fatherless"[link].
I think i might actually make a folder for that so u people won't get lost in my gallery if u do decide to look.

Anyway, please feel free to comment. I want to hear what you people have to say about this. :)

one more thing...the preview image....the words were done on a normal computer paint and everthing else on DAmuro. hope u like it as well. :)


p.s. feel free to check out my group ArtOfTheFatherless[link] :)

This actually made me cry. I can relate to it and it reminds me of a period of time when I felt this way and that feeling lasted for a very long time. Good job. :)

i find myself feeling stuff like this often. it constantly bothers me but sometimes i manage to ignore it o occupy my mind with something else.

it feels a bit worse with th knowledge that my dad is alive and well living abraod and chooses not to be there for me and so forth. i speak to him on short phone calls that last some minutes whenver he decides to grace me with his voice which is often months apart....:(

At least you still get to hear from your dad. I haven't heard from mine since I was seven years old!

i guess that is something to be thankful for.
Nevertheless it's still painful. my dad left me when i was bout 3 months old. i have absolutely no memory of ever seeing him face to face or experiencing that sort of love first hand from him. like a simple hug you know. i dont know what it means to be daddy's girl or how to even function with a dad if i were to get one.

it didn't always affect me this much. subconsciously yes, but i dinn't really realize it till my teenage years like now. i find myself more and more noticing the void in my heart and desiring that sort of love to fill it.

that's why i long to hear from him at times. that's why i dont hate him. that's why i would dare forgive him.

i cant truly hate someone i dont even know. nor can stay angry and avoid someone i feel i so desparately need.

yet, it's still hurts. maybe it's the fact that i think he sometimes lies to me on the phone or dont truly love me.

the sorta ironic thing is.... that i take by him ALOT. alotof my personality and the way i act mirrors him. it's in my blood. He's in my blood. it's what makes me who i am.

i find myself disliking those i grew up with, the same ones who nurtured and took care of me, my mom and her family. i'm not like them. yes they're in my dna to, but my father's genes are stronger.

sigh.
i guess i maybe shouldn't go rambling on lik this.:)

the feeling is mutual. it seems that not a day goes by without the thought of my father going through my mind.
the difference is, my father is alive..... but he left me when i was bout 3 months old and i have not seen him since.:(

I, kind of, know what this is like. My own father left shortly after I was conceived and has had nothing to do with me my entire life.

I have written a poem based on mine as well it's called "Father of Mine" and can be found here. [link]

my dad left not long after i was born as well. occasionally, whenever he feels like it, he may grace me with his voice or send $$ or somthin but that cannot fill the empty void in my heart that can only be filled with a true father....
Truth be told, i really want a father, and not having a father truly there for me or even a father figure, has had its negative effects. I need to fill that void...

I said conceived... meaning I was still in the womb. He left because my mom wouldn't get an abortion...
If it wasn't for a court order, mine probably wouldn't have even payed child support. He has never done anything more than that.
I know there are negative effects... I know them quite well ^^;

thank u:)
Knowing that their are people who can empathise with me is like it good and bad thing. On one hand i know the in some way that they understand and that i am not alone/the only one in this sorta situation.
On the other hand, i don't want others to experience the effect not having a father has on a child's life:(...

but i totally agree, i would never want people to feel the way we feel, but i also feel its important to write about the feeling and the experience so maybe people will reconsider their actions because they know how they can effect people

i agree. parents...especially fathers in this case need to know how important they r a child's life and development. Being a parent is a serious responsibility whether u want it or not....

While I cannot say that I relate to this poem, it's very well written. I can't say I felt from the words of the poem what this is like, but it's not because the work wasn't written well; I just don't feel like I have the right to say that. Anywho, it's a lovely piece. Very good.
