Ashamed

Everyone says
I’m just like you dad.
Each time I hear,
I puff up with pride.
It gives me strength
and makes you feel near.
The man I never knew
cause too young, you died.
Then I saw
the things you did.
My stomach twists
and ties in knots.
You’re the bully
I’ve always faced.
Cruel without reason,
a show-off for cheap laughs.
Now at your mention
I can’t help but feel
so ashamed.

Prompt: Ashamed
