It's a little past supper time
I'm still out on the porch steps sittin' on my behind,
Waiting for you.
Wondrin' if everything's alright,
Moma said, "Come in boy, don't waste your time,"
I said, "I've got time. Well he'll be here soon."
Five years old and talkin' to myself.
Where were you? Where'd ya go? Daddy can't you tell?

Chorus.

I'm not tryin' to fake it, and I ain't the one to blame.
No, there's no one home in my house of pain.
I didn't write these pages and my script's been re-arranged.
No, there's no one home in my house of pain.

Wasn't I worth the time?
A boy needs a daddy like a dance to mime and all the time,
Ilooked up to you.
I paced my room a million times.
And all I ever got was one big line, the same old lie.
How could you?
Well I was eighteen years and still talkin' to myself.
Where were you? Where'd ya go? Daddy can't ya tell?

**End**
Well if I've learned anything from this, shh, it's how to grow up
On my own.

    Having both a Mother and a Father is crutial in the growing process, especially for younger children. Divorce, yes that nasty word, has a profound affect on a person involved, especially a young mind. Parants usually do some sort of arguing and fighting, with the belief that the children don't here or aren't listening, big mistake on the parents behalf to think that to be true. A lot of times this action is done without the involvement of the children. This in return can leed them to believe that they had something to do with it. That is a hard thing to get out of your mind ounce it's in, especially for a child who doesn't understand. Been there done that. Can we say a good possability of abandonment issues latter in life.?!
