Father

Father.
That’s all you’ll ever be.
Do you know what it means
To be a Dad?

Father.
Never giving a s***.
Do you know anything
About me?

Father.
Pretending to listen.
Do you hear when I cry
Out for help?

Father.
Never telling the truth.
Do you understand that
I see you?

Father.
That’s all you’ll ever be.
Do you know what it means
To be a Dad?
