A FATHER’S DAY POEM

June 24, 2013 at 7:36 pm 2 comments

The members of my writers group, The Wordwrights, were given an assignment to write a Father’s Day piece. I decided to write a poem.

The poem is bleak, but it reflects a trend I see.

I could be totally wrong. I hope I am.

THE FATHER THAT NEVER WAS

Contributing their seed,
They flee,
Gone.
Not knowing life was passed,
Never hearing the first cry
In the silent night,
Creating a hollow being,
Guidance from the streets
Of despair,
Walking a path
Into a world
Of dead ends,
Death, all too young
The only future.

    By the number of grandparents I see raising children these days…it is not only the fathers who are fleeing.

      You make a very valid point.
