Dear Dad

Dear Dad short poem

Uploaded by Jen Stone

dear dad
I am sorry
sorry I’m not good enough
for your fearfully high standards
knowing I’m afraid of heights
dear dad
I am sorry
you expect so much
without knowing I can’t achieve it for you
threatening me when I don’t
dear dad
I am sorry
that a daughter who fails is worse
than one who smokes, does drugs
or falls pregnant
dear dad
I am sorry
you’re losing face
because you don’t have a daughter smart enough
to brag about to your colleagues
dear dad
I am sorry
for not turning out the way you always wanted me to
