What you taught me

You can take and never give
You can be and never live
You can lie and you can cheat
In the name of the father
You can leave your wife
and break your daughter
You tell me I’m not enough
You can leave when things get rough
You can take all I believed
You taught me everyone leaves
Thank-you Dad, you taught me all I know
You taught me when I should stay;
how easy it is to go
Love it is temporary
Contempt is ordinary
You showed me women are strong
Never to admit I’m wrong
You made me believe, my talent’s not real
Taught me how to hide everything I feel
You gave me strength, when I thought I had none
You made lies feel like love and
stole a life from all who loved
