Apart from longing and deprivation, Walker shows regret in the first stanza as well stating “I wish he had not been so tired when I was born”. Although it wasn’t stated as to why the father had been tired, it is assumed that it was due to a burden of an additional mouth to

She is free to live the life she wants, unlike her father who was bound by his job and desire to support his family, represents when she was a baby and their lack of time together. Stanza two is lengthy, Walker makes use of repetition , she shows how she realises how much she misses him as she gets older, her feelings become more intense (note the use of exclamation as she is more emphatic) . Lapses and leaps between memories as she remembers the past and her father memories come to us sporadically. Unstructured as she lives an unstructured life where she does as she pleases.
On the streets, everyone still knew me as Lil’ Roze, or even my new street name, K.A.S.H: King, assassin, scholar, hitman.
