I wish I knew my father. I wish to know his name. I wish to know his features, he's face, his nose, his smile. I want to know him. His traits and who he is. What have I gained from his genes? I wish to know which parts of me are parts of him. I want to know if he'd care. If he'd like to know that he's a father. I want to everything about him. I want to know how he is me and how I'm him. I want to know who I am myself. From a man I don't know.
