Walking In My Shoes: My Life In Poetry

A summary of my life's most painful and delicate moments. Brought to life in poetic expression.


How do you just walk away

With nothing to say

Left behind your seeds like dead weeds for someone else to care for.

My mind drifts to wonder who,or what kind of man could do this?

No calls for the holidays, and even your own son’s graduation you found someone way to remain out of the picture. 

You seem to slither, in when you want to. Thinking the world owes you.

What would it cost, for you to take your children out on a sunny day, or ask about their grades? A simple visit to show you care? Or would that be too much for you?

Tears are no longer wasted, since your children have tasted your absence

Digested it with no more chances to give.

I hope you live to see regret. I hope you see what you left behind. I hope you you will have time to straighten out the mess you’ve made.

I hope you don’t take this anger with you to your grave. 

If so, then it is your loss, for not carrying the cross of fatherhood.

No good, not worthy anymore. I believe the next time you decide to show up,not to let you through the door.
