Prom

I know that I’m a fuck up
Dad…
But at least I’m man enough to admit it,
And I know that I’m a little sad,
But at least I’m strong enough to deal with it.
Oh I know I’m a fuck up dad,
You never paid for my prom dress,
And I aint even mad…
Because it would probably look a right mess.
Oh I know that I’m a fuck up,
I had a baby at 16,
And you hated that I demonstrated that I’m strong to go through with it,
I don’t know what you wanted for me,
Because you clearly didn’t care if I was happy.
A father doesn’t demean,
Change the locks,
Shut their only daughter out,
At least I am a fuck up dad…
Because the best fuck ups are human…
My children will never view me like that,
And I will teach them all I do know.
You couldn’t hide the truth from me for too long,
The world was bound to let me know soon enough,
Life isn’t always easy but it doesn’t always have to be so tough.
