Walking Away

Words to My Father

He called me today

I had no words to say

My anger still brimming from days long gone away

What am I to say

It's you that pushed me away

Never admitting any wrong in anyway

What am I to say

I have no interest if you did or are to change your ways

For your actions from days long gone away

they scorn me as if it were today

Thought I may not like it

I am a reflection of you I am ashamed to say

I fight with myself constantly because I wish not to be you

But my nature I cannot wish away

I am your kin though I wish it was not this way

Though you were not great you sometimes made me happy

At least you never walked away

But I must for I wish to be nothing like you

So then I must walk away.
