You get upset

When I call you father

But do you really think that

You deserve to be called dad

You were sent away to prison

When my brother and I

Were very young

I was five and he was three

God blessed you

To have your sentence

Reduced tremendously

You are now free

After ten years of being

Away I can’t believe

That we are the last ones

On your list that you are

Trying to see

My brother and I

Are wondering why

Is it too much

For you to be a father to us

My mother doesn’t understand

But she keeps on pushing

You got us all

Sitting back thinking wow

On this day

I made a vow

That if I were to ever

Become a father

I will never

Abandon, disrespect or hurt

My child or it’s mother
