I am the….

Daughter of a preacher man
Stifled and scared
To tell him
I’m not who he thinks I am

My daddy was perfect
My mommy said,
The smartest man around
And the best looking in town

He preached fire and fear
Opinions not entertained
God’s word is
Literally contained

He knew the truth
And knows it well
His message to the world
Repent or go to hell

Title was “From Wence I Came”

Yes, my dad still preaches and teaches but not the main man. We talk every week but not about religion. He knows I have different beliefs but does not know that I don’t believe in his God or the Bible. Attending my mom’s funeral was hard (almost 3 years ago), but I’m glad I did. I felt no guilt.
