Good dad persona

You'll probably never see this
Never read this
You probably don't even know
That I'm a writer

You were proud of me
For as long as it was convenient

You supported me
For as long as it supported your good dad persona

You bragged about me
For as long as it made your Facebook friends
Think I turned out well
Because of you

You tried to use me
For as long as it seemed like I was easily manipulated

You loved me
For as long as you thought you actually had to love something
To be its father

I imagine you acted like my father
For as long as you thought I'd be an obedient daughter

I wonder how long it will take
Before you don't even consider yourself to be
My father
Except it's always felt like an act
So maybe you never really were
And maybe I never should've wondered
