14 Years

by Phantom Lord   Sep 22, 2006

Who would've thought
On that cold winter night
That everyday of my life
Would be such a fight?

I never really thought
You'd disappear like you have
Were you just a coward?
Or afraid to be a dad?

so where did you go?
What did I do?
Are you ashamed of me?
Because I'm not ashamed of you

It's been 14 years
Still I can forgive
And if I said I still loved you
Would it be a sin?

You're so selfish
I hate what you've done
Ripped apart our family
But still,I'm your son

All it would've taken
Was just a lousy call
But I bet you take joy
In watching me fall

So in these 14 years
And through all this pain
The one thing I've learned
Is that things will never change

    This is very touching. i can feel a little resentment, yet forgiveness in this piece. all you want is a little time with your father, that isn't much to ask for at all... yet sometimes fathers only think of themselves, which in my opinion makes them a low piece of shit. it's his loss, not yours... he will regret it one day.

    Oh my...this moved me frm my chair like a hurricane..a calm one tho.

    this is absolutely full of emotions. and some times we can never understand the choices those ppl around us make, or even the actions they take sounds for us unfair unreasonable injustice regarding how they mark us deep inside.

    but sometimes we learn to forgive and accept, because when ever you understand that you can never change ppl, but ppl change alone once they recognize ..u will learn to be satisfied and happy.. even then.

    I love this piece, a lot.
    keep it up
