Miss Thang

Man's burden

I know your burden is heavy as you wait for relief.
You lay in the bed praying just for some peace.
You have a world of responsibility upon you
Trying to be sure that you always do
Whatever it takes to do for everyone else
Too much pride to ask for some help.
You don’t want to disappoint anyone you love
As you close your eyes praying to God above.
To strengthen you and give you the ability
To use you in all the ways you know He needs.
I know it’s overwhelming and tiring too
All the things you feel expected to do.
I look at you with eyes of respect
Watching you trying to balance and reflect.
You see the needs of all the people around you
And constantly envisioning what to do.
You spend hours upon hours trying to please everyone
And yet you never feel like your work is ever done.
I know you don’t get the response you deserve
For all you do as you continue to serve.

Where's my dad?

Growing up without a dad wasn’t so bad.
I mean, You can’t miss what you never had.
It wasn’t until I got a little older
That I felt that soft tap on my shoulder.
That had me looking back on the past
Wondering where my dad was at.
I see my husband with our kids and I
Sometimes blink so that I won’t cry.
As I begin to realize
And start to ask why
I never had a dad to hold my hand
To show me what it’s like to trust a man
To wlk me to school or yell at my games
I’m left incomplete without even his name
I see my daughters with their dad
And start to recognize what I never had
Wondering what he might be like
If his name is Tom, Bobby, Dennis or Mike
Do I look like him?
Would he recognize me?

No Childhood

Grew up too fast
Childhood didn't last
Defiled at the age of 3
Changing my life permanently
Mom wasn't there
Life wasn't fair
Never met my dad
Neglect was all I had
Grew up too fast
Childhood didn't last
16 and pregnant
didn't know what that meant
responsibility aquired
overworked and over tired
child number 2 on the way
just another month - just another day
married and divorced by 23
struggling to find the inner me
trying to identify what love was
yearning to know if I was enough
