an abused child's perspective
Hey Daddy!
By Sugaree

Hey Daddy, guess what I learned today
That those little secret games that we used to play
Will be forever etched in my mind; never go away

Hey Daddy, guess what else I learned today
That eight out of ten children that play like we did
Will not trust anyone, not even God, and wont want to pray

Hey Daddy, guess what else I learned
That when we get old enough
We can sell our bodies just like in the lessons earned

Hey Daddy, you taught me to be afraid
Since this is a sick world
I sit here, lonely and stayed

Hey Daddy, do you hear me talking to you?
Since we last played
All of my days have been blue
