Earlier on in this blog I wrote a poem for my biological father in hopes that he would see it. Update, no he has not see it. In fact, he’s done everything in his power to erase me from his life completely.
For so long, I have let him ruin me. I let him poison my mind with thoughts that I wasn’t good enough. Let’s face it, if I wasn’t good enough for him, why should I be good enough for anyone else right? WRONG. It took me a really long time to realize it but I AM good enough. I have to at least believe that.
So cheers to you “dad” and all of the baggage that comes with being your daughter. Cheers to you for your abandonment. Cheers to you writing me every once in a great while. But most of all, cheers to you for showing me how great I am. Because I am freaking awesome, and if you can’t see that, then best of luck.
If by chance you do check out my blog after all these years, here is your goodbye. From the daughter you never bothered to get to know. From a broken soul reaching out for you. From the strong person that rose from that broken soul. Goodbye, dad.
