None are to be trusted,
All will leave eventually.

Lessons my father taught me.

My body type isn’t average,
Grades are never high enough;
Nothing defining,

No significance.
Lessons my father taught me.

They are not to be trusted,
All will leave eventually.
I will be left alone in darkness.
Imaginary voices my only friend,
Insanity the only comfort in my solitude.

Alone and forgotten,
Lessons my father taught me.

Eventually the door will open,
Light will shine through.
All will be okay.

I was searching for a father…
Fortunately I found only a dad.
