A/N: Yet another poem by my friend about her father. Please read and review, thanks.

~I Cannot Cry~


I cannot
Cry
Anymore.
Why?
I cannot
Be sure.

This feeling
Of emptiness,
I must
Confess,
Will not
Leave
My heart.

Because of you
And what
You do,
Hurts me
So much.

You are
My father,
Yet
You do not
Care.

Why
Do you
Do this
To me,
To us?

I want
To cry.
Don't you
Care?

If you do,
You don't
Show it.

You have
Done it
Again,
To me,
To us.

I cannot
Take it
Much longer.

Mom is only
One person.
Won't you
Help us?
Don't you
Care?

I want
To learn.
I want
A future.

You do not
Care-
You do not
Understand-
You do not
Know-
You do not
Love me.

I want
To cry,
But I
Cannot,
Because I am
Like you.

I no longer
Care.
