What happens now?

Curtains don’t deter light
Biceps do not win a fight
Conquering has to do with might
This they say, a father is a girl’s first boyfriend.
From him she will learn how to be loved,
How to be treated,
And the kind of treatment she will allow from any man in future.
What happens when you own father is the one who breaks you?
When he’s the prowling lion
Waiting to devour
A father is said to be protective over his own.
Now they find pleasure only in
Control and ruling
Having the final say
Eat, sleep and play as you may
But the life ain’t yours nomatter what day
If your own father can’t protect you from
The evils of the world,
The winds that come and go,
Then who will?
