I meant to turn her away,
now I have nothing left to say,
how can I say I’m sorry,
or look her in the eye,
a touch would ask forgiveness,
and to forgive,
would be a lie….

I tried to shield her,
to protect,
my thoughts seemed right,
to protect,
my Princess with all my might,
she was never weak,
but I was never right.

To the bone I was like him,
a mirror from the past,
making all the rules,
the bad fucking ass,
it was like looking in a mirror,
as I stare at him now,
I feel so cold,
I sigh and shiver.

Silence says it all,
so loud it hurts my ears,
nothing really matters,
not the life I’ll loose in years,
I have already lost my daughter,
through her silent hateful tears.

I was only protecting my girl,
the apple of my eye,
almost to excess,
“To far!!” I hear her scream,
“Daddy I fucking hate you!!”
will be all that haunts my dream.

To protect,
is not to kill,
to kill,
suppress the will,
but still,
we get confused,
in killing one,
we kill another,
we kill a stranger,
we kill a brother….
