im scared

My Real Dad

I'm scared
To knock on your door.

I'm scared
To ask for you
If one of your kids
Or even your wife

I'm scared
to say
I'm your daughter
You left 17 years ago,
The one you forgot about.

I'm scared
To see how you look at me.

I'm scared
You'll just shut the door
In my face.

I'm scared
You wont remember
Ever having loved me.

I'm scared
That you never did.

I'm scared
You'll laugh and say
Yeah right,
Then secretly call me
Moments later.

But most of all,
I'm scared that you never changed
And I'm just going to drag my family
Back into what we got out of.
