Fears


Just leave and walk away, without placing happiness in my eyes
I've had enough of broken promises, they've turned into my sighs.
I love you makes no sense at all, especially with your fury.
From the beginning I am not your judge or jury.
You've done nothing, except drain all my tears.
And now I need to break through fears.

    Fantastic! Love it. Oddly enough, except for the fears part, it describes the relationship between my father and myself. I stopped fearing him at 16 and stopped talking to him when I was 22. The last words he ever heard from me were, If you want to do me any favors, get out of my life and stay out of my life because all you've ever brought me is hardship and suffering. He died from cancer years later and even when I knew he was at death's door I didn't go to see him. In my universe he had died years and years before. He was a good example of how not to be a loving and responsible father. At his funeral,3 of his 8 children attended....that speaks volumes.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
