Reflections of a Man
You are nothing more to me than an estranged person.
The hurt you caused me I will never forget,
With the pain in my heart as a reminder.
The scars on my soul bare your name.
You hate me, even though you don't know me.
I didn't expect you to love me,
But never once did you say you at least cared.
You scream at me that I'm wrong,
But never once did you show me how to be right.
You tell me I'm hopeless,
But never once did you entrust in me your hope.
You were supposed to love me,
And you were supposed to care,
But I found out early on this wasn't so.
I used to try to make you love me;
Now, that time has passed.
No matter how hard I'd try,
You were never satisfied.
Don't call me daughter, for it is only in name.
