Brooke Bollea wants to prove that the pen is mightier than the sword and the leg drop. So she penned a poem entitled "If You Knew My Father," in which she expresses her love as a daughter and laments how difficult it is to be constantly judged by public scrutiny. Generally, publishing poems the day after a public relations disaster only causes more scrutiny, so let's dive into this masterpiece:

~If You Knew My Father~
By Brooke Bollea

If you knew the dad I knew,
you'd know his tender heart.

He'd never want to hurt his fans,
or family from the start.

If you knew my father,
you would know how hard he fought...

and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark.

We always fight a battle
that people never see,

and sometimes when you're hurting, you don't think logically.

Human isn't perfect,
and perfect is not he,

but I can tell you one thing, it's just not what it seems.

Cause If you knew the dad I knew,
you'd know he raised me well.

He taught me folks are so much more
than shades could ever tell.

And If you knew my father,
you would know he's down to earth.

He may have slammed the giant,
but remembers life's true worth.

If you knew my father,
if you just walked in his shoes...

then you would know that microscope that comes with yellow boots.

If you knew my father,
you would see your own in mine.

And if he was your father, you could never find divide.

Cause me- I bet your father
or someone that you love

Maybe regrets something
they wish they'd never done.

So if you know my father,
remember he's a man,

and you would crave relief if people judged everything you did.

The lord says to forgive them,
don't be the one to stone...

so please remember his strong arms when you were all alone.

The lives he's changed, the friends he's made,
the people he's inspired...

It makes me sad to see my dad
defeated and so tired.

If you knew my father,
you would know just how he's hurting...

For he loves every one of you, regardless of your story.

And if you met my father,
I know he'd give you love!

He'd lift you up, apologize and give you all a hug.

For those who think you know my father,
remember who you are.

We all can make mistakes and carry ugly scars.

Because I know my father,
I can promise this-

Just like you and I, things we don't mean can sometimes slip.

We all continue learning.
This life can be so rough...

So if you know my father, please try not to be tough.

My father has a daughter,
and I have feelings too.

And if I knew your father, I would do the same for you.

Hopefully Brooke realizes that this will just cause more headlines, and also that brevity is the soul of wit. That thing really just kept going. If there's one lesson we've learned from celebrities like Paula Deen, it's don't be racist or you will likely lose all of your endorsements and income, and really make people angry.
