Christina Aguilera, the singing superstar has hauled her cruel father over the coals for having made her childhood a nightmare. She explains it vividly in her latest album Stripped. The number is ironically labeled, “I’m ok”!
Many parents are abominably stupid in making the childhood experience of their children a veritable hell.
These lines from the song bear testimony to the agony and the trauma that she, as a hapless child had undergone!
“The echo of a broken child screaming “please no more”
Daddy, don’t you understand the damage you have done
To you it’s just a memory, but for me it still lives on
Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept me so, so afraid
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave
Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday
It’s not so easy to forget
All the lines you left along her neck
When I was thrown against cold stairs
And every day I’m afraid to come home
In fear of what I might see there”
