I wonder why it is that when a woman decides to have a child she is given certain rights and a man loses more. Why can a woman deceive a man and become pregnant and then know that she will be provided for until that child turns 18? Why is a man expected to take care of himself and any children he may have but a woman will be given the means to an “equitable life” no matter what she was before a marriage/relationship, and certainly no matter how much she contributed during said relationship? Why can’t I just decide to quit my job and take the baby into my care and have HER pay my rent and bills and food and clothing and a little extra so I can have some fun? It seems to me that this “system” err’d when it attempted to protect the small percentage of women who were truly mistreated and to punish the small percentage of men who were truly neglectful and went so overboard that lawyers, judges, mediators, politicians, woman, etc. now not only make a living off of treating every father like a deadbeat and taking away every right, but every GOOD father has to pay the price for the small few that truly deserved to lose their rights. Shame on the system, shame on those mothers, shame on you politicians, and shame on every one of you that supports a lazy, entitled, greedy, selfish mother who destroys a father only to make their own children suffer!!!! http://www.facebook.com/alwaystheirdad
I wake and roll to my side
grab a breath to face this ride.
First thing I do is check control
and fight the darkness that’s in my soul.
Then it hits me like a ton of bricks
I’m alone in a room controlled by pricks.
The laws in place to keep us free
Allowed a man to take my kids from me.
That’s when everyone tries to placate me
as if their platitudes could satiate me
and control is stripped by those who hate me.
So I bite my tongue and bleed inside
and trust my girls take this in stride.
While I’m beaten, broken, screwed and cheated
Injustice for brothers that only gets repeated
Courts rape our rights
and take our children while everyone watches.
Children lose in fights
and lose a parent while everyone watches.
