Poem: Deadbeat Dad

He gives you a beating
Telling you it’s the best thing
For you to be black and blue
His word’s aren’t true
But you stay because your afraid
Not of the life you could have instead
But of the one you have led
Trying to get the courage to leave
The one who has made you grieve
Over the love you thought you had
For this deadbeat dad
It’s driving you mad
It’s time that you left
Before you make a u turn
This is a lesson learnt
You deserve more
Than the future he has in store
For him and you
Living black and blue
