Dear Dad

Dear Dad, I am so angry at you, For not being a dad… For going without food, Starving nights that I had… Freezing during winter, No heat in the home… Not being a provider, Always feeling alone… For not protecting me, From the monsters around… Even though their family, For the pain, I was bound… For never wanting me, Always wanting a son… Grooming masculinity, Hating me when it’s done… For the pain that you caused, When I said I was gay… Exiling with teeth and claws, And, there’s more to say… I am angry at you Dad, But, forgiveness, I give… For me, so, I’m not sad, And, continue to live. J.E.
