Old man, old man
Your hearing has deteriorated as you age,
But your mindset remains the same.
Like a stream that flows endlessly.
With no foe or ally blocking its way.

 

I paint my surroundings with raging words I wish to convey.
A thousand writers fail to match my bitter pain.
Anger, frustration, and sorrow
Seep from my eyes onto paper.
This dagger-like pen
Drift on these blank sheets.
Striking you like lightning.

 

I write stories you can’t comprehend.

My dear, old man.

One day, you’ll understand.

This is to my father. It's hard to forgive a parent, but as time passes and I've gotten more mature, the tension starts to fade.
