Poem To My Dad

You told me you loved me,
you said that’d never change,
but every time I’m happy,
you always become enraged. 

And when something makes me happy,
you tell me it isn’t right,
every time I laugh,
you have to ponder ‘what at?’

You crushed my dreams,
and I want to leave,
but you hold me back.
Each time I cry you ask why,
but honestly it isn’t fact. 

I hurt when I’m around you,
and I hurt when I’m away,
because I know that I am afraid,
of ever having to come back.
