The most relevant issue is whether or not the OP's father was a German citizen at the time of the OP's birth.

If he was not, the OP will in general have no chance to become German UNLESS his father was deprived of his German citizenship
  • on certain grounds clearly stipulated in the laws during the German Nazi regime (these are eg "Verfolgte") or
  • during the Polish communist regime (these are eg "Spätaussiedler").
The German consulate will be happy to help.
