VIDEO POEM: A Letter To My Father “From A Daughter’s Perspective”

DISCLAIMER: Adult Language

The impact and influence that a father’s love has on his daughter is like no other. He is the first man that will love her and show her how love is supposed to be. A father sets the tone for the type of man she will date and the type of stuff she’ll take from that man. A father should be the first man to tell his daughter that she’s beautiful and that she’s worthy of all that life has to offer.

Unfortunately, there are to many little girls growing up without these first from their fathers. They are left to find love and affection from shadowed images of what or whom they believe their father is. They may even date reflections of the father that emotionally hurt them and caused them pain. Not having a father in the home can cause serious damage to the upbringing of a young lady. I myself was raised without my father in the home and it took me many years, well into my adulthood, to deal with low self-esteem and the value of my worth.

Many men and women know someone that is dealing with “daddy issues” right now that is affecting the way they live their life.

I found this video on Facebook of Brianna Designed ByCrime expressing her perspective to her father and uncontrollable tears fell. I wonder how many young women are walking around with these types of emotions built up inside? I also wonder how many fathers are walking around not knowing that their daughter is walking around with these types of feelings and animosity towards them?

I’m sharing this video with you all so we can look fatherless homes, fatherless daughters, and single parent homes in the eyes and say “No More!”

No more will we let our daughters carry this type of burden around with them from children into adults. No more will we keep fathers from their children. No more will we be a father that doesn’t step up to raise the children we created. No more will we let our issues and disregard for each other as parents affect the well being of our children.

My heart aches for the young lady that made this video. However, when I think about all the young girls, ladies, and women that may be walking around with this sentiment my heart breaks in pieces.

No more can we stand for this type of anguish being planted and rooted in our children, in this generation, in our legacies, in our culture.

    The video wasn't available due to "copyright issues" but, having read the summary above I will say: perhaps if some mothers would be truthful with their daughter(s) instead of portraying the "missing" father(s) as slug(s) and in ways that will make them (mothers) appear to be the ones who were 'wronged", the "daughter(s)", in those particular cases, would not feel so deserted by the father(s). I know at least one father who tried repeatedly quite a few years ago to gain access to his young daughters, wanted to participate in their lives, and even hired an out-of-state attorney to track the mother down, and put through a support petition (initiated by the father because he wanted to support financially) in the State the mother lived because he wanted to be a part of his daughters' lives but, surprise, surprise — mama wanted nothing to do with it. Refused to show up to court, etc. Why? I suspect very strongly, based on current events, she didn't want a light shown on her own activities because, in that particular State, her butt probably would have been thrown into jail, and she didn't "need" anything from the father because her own daddy was more than willing to meet all her financial needs and continues to do so to this day instead of insisting that she at least attempt to earn a living. I'm sorry if those I'm thinking of happen to see this comment and feel hurt or take offense but I'm tired of the vicious, self-serving, self-seeking women (one in particular) who keep father(s) from their children. In fact, in this particular case, the same mother has done the same thing to more than one father. She's the one who has hurt her children — all of them. Not only did she refuse the father's attempts, but almost from their births, she refused to let the father's family even see them when they took several long distance trips to see her daughters. All I can say is that karma is hell and it will present itself eventually.

    Yes, there are some fathers who are slugs. There are also some mothers who are slugs. In some cases, the mothers have been everything but truthful with their children and they, by their intentional actions (vicious, selfish, self-serving, controlling, maniuplative, sick handiwork) are solely responsible for what appears to have been a lack of love and interest on the fathers' parts. And, actually, some women pull this on multiple fathers of her children. There are always two sides to every story — in some instances, more than two. Karma is hell and one day it will appear.
