My father left me when I was young,
My father abandoned me when I was a child,
My father hates me with all his heart.

I do not know what I did to him,

for I was but a boy,

an empty child.

It is said that no elephant escaped its trunk,

So why did you abandon me?

So why did you abandon me?

They talk and praise theirs but I don’t know what to say,

because you have rejected me.

I realise that I have been created with needless hatred for you,

my heart is dark because of you, my father.

What about you?

I cry out every day for you,

night and day have I become as they are: for thou hast rejected me.

I pray every day that you come back into my life,

my father abandoned me.
