I blame you daddy for making me want to be better than yesterday.
I blame you for always having a vision and seeing it before it happens.
I blame you for working and showing me what a provider is supposed to be.
I blame you for taking walks in good health with me.
I blame you for never falling back on your word.
I blame you for making it hard for any man to walk into my life as my husband.
I blame you daddy for giving me a last name that means strong tree.
I blame you for making me a strong woman.
I blame you for my unique sense of fashion and style.
I blame you for my future clothing line’s logo.
I blame you for showing me love instead of telling me love.
Now I can’t grasp anything less than hard work.
Now I won’t settle for anything that isn’t lined up with my purpose filled vision.
Now I won’t accept a man who is anything less of what you are.
Now I will not be anything less than the name you have given me.
Now I can’t believe all the times I fought to understand your NO.
You always told me one day I would understand.
You told me that at the end of the day if anything happened you would be there.
You drove a taxi for me.
You starved for me.
You hustled for me.
You fought for me.
You would have died for me.
You understood me before I understood myself.
Now that I understand myself.
I understand you.
I blame you daddy.
I blame you.
