"I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong." ~John Lennon

"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?" ~John Lennon

"When you're drowning, you don't say 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream." ~John Lennon

You were my dad that I once knew
But little do you know the pain you put me through
I've grown up and realized
That your life is nothing but one thousand lies
You say that you love me more than I know
But if that were true then why doesn't it show?
I know you have her
And you love her, I'm sure
But don’t forget I’m in your blood too
But obviously that doesn't mean anything to you
I remember when I was the twinkle in my daddy’s eyes
Then he left one day with out saying good-bye
You say moms standing in the way
And all she wants is for you to pay
Maybe that’s true
But what can I do?
I’m your daughter
And you’re supposed to be my father
Does that mean anything to you?
But that you'll never see
And a father you will never be
If you could see the tears running down my face
Still the years have passed you can’t replace
So, dad I've given up on you and this time I’ll leave.
From this day forward I won’t call you dad.

No one is your strength or guidance. If life is what you wish to live then do not bind your soul to something unreal. The creater nor the keeper can heal you for it is blind faith that leads you.

I love this. Its spoken with so much depth to it. And it's relatable. Very well done. Keep writing:)

"Help me mother, save me father. Keep me from fading away. Send me hope. Send me love. Remind me your not far away." The quote can mean whatever you want it to, but to me, it's about God, Our Father, and Mary, Our Mother.

OMG!! This describes my relationship with my dad perfectly!! :'(

This is so moving, and I'm really sorry if this is based on your own life...if it is, he's missing out on a daughter that has a real gift for writing! x
