Daddy Issues

What to do? What to do? What to do when your dad calls you useless?

When he screams in your face?

When rears back to slap your sister?

When he throws a chair at your head?


Nothing. You are supposed to do nothing.

That’s when I’ve been taught for years.

To do nothing. To take it. To be quiet.

Don’t have an opinion. Don’t make a sound

Smile. He’s nice. He really loves you. He does.


I’m calling it.

My love for him was DOA when you sent me to try and fix it.

So, what to do. What to do?

When your dad hates you and you hate your dad?
