      To the Daughter I Never Had (and to Yours), If I could sit with you, face to face over a cup of coffee or a milkshake, these are the things I would want to tell you. The first thing I would make sure that you know is that you were created by a God who loves you. I don’t know the circumstances of your birth. Mother, Father Lyrics: She sits alone, an empty stare / A mother's face she wears / Where did she go wrong / The fight is gone / Lord help this broken home / Hey, mother, father, sister / .

    You're the same mother I had when I was a child and I'm not sorry to say that that mother isn't good enough for me anymore. I'm done dreaming of "what-ifs". I'm accepting that you can't and won't be that person. So someday if I have children of my own, they won't know you. And it won't be my fault. I'll be the mother to them that I never had in. Well my mother never told me That you couldn't find the answers To the father that I never knew I imagined who he was As I am looking in the mirror Still there's nothing there to give a clue 'Cause I'd really like to know me And I need to know what I missed Yeah I hope that you can show me There's a road to take me out of this Don't think twice.

      To the father who never knew me: I'm sorry it took you so long to finally talk to me — that you felt the urge to talk to me after being gone for 16 years. You thought you being absent was my fault, although I was a child. You missed important milestones like my first day of kindergarten and my high school graduation. Go on a journey with five men growing up in the inner city, as their stories unfold of how life without a positive fatherly influence led them down a road of desperation. They searched for love, guidance, and acceptance, but instead found themselves getting involved in gangs, drugs, and gun violence, ending up in a very dark place where they discovered The Father They Never Knew.
