"No matter what anyone tells you, words and ideas can change the world."

The bottle in your hand
Poison in your veins
Only two years old
Screaming your name
“When’s Daddy coming home?”
Little did I know you would never come home
You never said goodbye
You were missing for two weeks
In that moment
I realized I lost the only dad I knew

The author's comments:

I wrote this poem because I lost my dad when I was two years old. He was an alcoholic, a pretty bad one if I must say. Everything that is in this poem is about everything that happened, with him and his death.
