Just Get Over Yourself

Just get over yourself,
You the person that thinks you are just so cool
By trying to cut myself and my husband down,
By trying to say shit about the way I act and look,
By telling me to get over things you have no
Inkling of an idea on what it is even all about,
You that just assume shit and twist it all around,

That became fathers were not the assholes
That it seemed to run in my life very often,
You touched my life and many others
Before you were called away from this world,
You had the gift of making people laugh,
And to make people think.
To the man that was my father,
You gave so much to this world
And probably could have given so much more
If your life wasn’t cut short by a disease
That you never asked for and got from your younger days,
You gave faith back to our mom
And back to so many of us in so many ways,
You gave us love that set us al…
