I don’t know you.
Someone so important as
You and I don’t know you.
A stranger I see everywhere
In me.
In my eyes, my nose, my high arched
Eyebrows, my forehead, my olive
complexion, my reflection.
As much as I try to fight it,
I am you.
You’re part of the gap in my life.
Try to move on, but I see you even
in my last name
I feel different because of you,
Can’t relate to anyone.
A stranger has affected my life.
Why don’t you just leave me alone?
I am not you.
I don’t know you;
You’re a stranger.

The author's comments:

The stranger in my life is my father. I know there is many who can relate to me. A parent is someone big in our lives, when we don't know them it can be very difficult. I personally feel uncompleted sometimes, my whole life is a mystery. I hope people can understand that their not alone and that they are worth so much, that their differnt.
