I’ll Never Abandon Myself {Like He Did Me} And Never Again Wonder My Worth

By Ashley Cappelletty

A Howl For All My Fellow Sisters With “Daddy Issues”

I remember at 6 years old “burying” my dad.
My way of trying to put him in the past.
I would have traveled to see him.
I begged him to want me and it felt like he didn’t want to.

Piece by piece,
I am collecting me up off the ground where he abandoned me.

Piece by piece,
I am filling the holes he burned in me.

I will never walk away, I will take care of me.
I love myself.

Piece by piece, the Goddess restored my faith,
That a man can be kind and a father could stay.

All of his words fall on deaf ears.
I am healing myself and now he wants to be Dad?

But my love it isn’t free, it has to be earned.
When he didn’t want me, I felt worthless.

I fell far from his tree.
I will never abandon myself like he did me.

I will never again wonder my worth.
Unlike him, I’m putting me first.

I will never break my heart or walk away.
I will take care of things, I will love me.

In the ways he could not and did not want to.
Piece by piece, the Goddess restored my faith

That a man can be kind and father should be GREAT.
