poem for my father

in your life
you held many titles
father and son
Sergeant First Class
Vietnam veteran
deadbeat dad
champion habitual liar
disappointer of your
children's children

i wonder which one
filled you with
the most pride
the most shame
if you could feel it
it's far too late
to find out
you've left again
this time for good

me has dejado asombrado.

escribir ayuda a exteriorizar las dudas, las penas, las frustraciones. Y esta vez lo has hecho muy bien! me ha gustado!
