Afraid of My Father (Poem)

My father never raised his hand,

He never raised his voice,

I was afraid of my father even if he never raised his hand,

I was afraid of my father even if he never raised his voice,

I was left with scars even if my father never raised his hand.

 

My father never made me feel like he loved me,

My father was controlling,

My spirit was shattered because my father always had control of me,

I hated that my father was controlling,

I wondered why my father didn’t love me.

 

My mother never defended me from my father,

I felt so alone in my own home,

I felt so caged because of my father,

I sought men to help me escape my home,

I sought men to help me escape my father.

 

All I got were men who were worse than my father,

In the end I always went back to my father,

Then one day I met a man who is better than my father,

It’s a wonderful husband who helped me with my father,

It’s a wonderful husband who helps me heal my spirit and the scars caused by my father.

 

It’s a wonderful husband who helps me deal with the fear I had of my father,

I no longer feel caged living with my father,

My husband brings out the good side of my father,

My husband comforts me when I have a hard time with my father,

Most of all, because I’m a wife, I’m no longer controlled by my father.
