Reviews for A father and his daughter
acatsrain chapter 1 . 3/5/2009
I actually live with my uncle and he's about the same way. I think personally it effects me in some twisted confusing way though. Because I can't love him like I would have a father (I've never actually met my father so I don't really know what it means too) but I can't just ignore him either. It left me pretty pessimistic growing up. Until about senior year of high school when a thought came into my mind, "Why am I trying to be what everyone wants me to be and coming up short either way? Why should I feel like the only one to blame?" So I just stopped and figured out what made me happy whether anyone else cared or not. I still don't always love who I am but I think I'm the only one who should be able to judge me.

I understand how that feels. In so many different angles. This way really good.

Oh my god.

I just read it, and I have to say, that yes.

I do feel that way about my dad.

No pleasing.

Just criticism.

Very moving.

m, my dad's not as harsh but bcuz i haven't contacted them first year uni n have dun badly on my exams n wat not he has threatened to throw me out of the house (which he can do bcuz i'm 18). but he's actually told me that if ther were a choice between me and my mom that he wud choose my mom n the only reason he hasn't beaten me up is bcuz i'm a grrl. he's threatening to cut me out of his life. not a good feeling and not exactly inspiring me to want to be his friend or his daughter much. n it may seem bad but i don't think i'd have much problem cutting him outta my life as long as i can keep my mom. he has compared me to my best friend and asked why i cudn't b organised like him. i will have u no that my friends mother is pretty much an alcoholic and that his dad is more wrapped up in his boat than his kids and he has basically raised his brother n sister since he was 11 n they aren't far bhind so that really hurt and i haven't even told my friend about it. n he does complain about my room. n now that my grades don't come with an effort mark, it's all come down to my number grades now which i hate even the concept of. n it's not that i doubt that he loves me but i think he finds it difficult to like me sumtimes. i feel so much pressure to be perfect and the first from our side of the family to get through college or uni.

...*sighs softly* If only you knew how much I wish I could have been there...I never had that with my father...but there too, I wondered at times if he was even there. Heart-breaking, this, and so cruel of a man...Your lot was cast far worse than mine, for all I've ever had to do is mask myself from the world...in any case, a good, clear, strong poem...and thank you for the reviews. They mean so much to me, m'dear...

Laters, youngling,

I know exactly how you feel. My dad's a total... Well, he's not very nice, either. Let's just leave it at that. Very nice way of explaining your emotions. Keep it up!

Oh, so sad...I can relate with you. My father's an ass. Nothing I ever do is good enough for him - so I am totally into this!

Ciao!

I hope your relationship with your dad isn't that bad, cause that was terribly sad. I would hate to feel unloved by my daddy. it would make me feel alone and sad. I really hope that wasn't from experience. But it was a great poem. the words are stirring and passionate.
The Random Winess chapter 1 . 6/10/2005
That is so unfair! Maybe if you showed this to him and said how you feel could he lighten up? The poem really gives off the point well, seems a bit disjointed by random rhymes but i really like it, full of imagry,from the heart and i liked how you said "if i could be.." and then explained each further! NICE!~TRW
Burnin Heart chapter 1 . 6/9/2005
Nice poem. I like the way you ended it - it's intriguing that you give the reader some hope. Lovely poem though! Thanx for the comment, btw and I totally agree with it - but it was the original work, so I don't want to change it. Anyways, love the poem. Dini
