I was brought up in 

parents vacant

a ghostly father
mostly heard

Mom said: “later”

pain & confusion was my legacy
Living broken was my creed

spending life times in counseling 
just longing to find Jephetto

the one that fixes broken toys…

miraculously found in Christ

    This is definitely a very inspiration write. I like the comparison between jephetto and Christ because Jephetto was willing to give up his life to fine Pinocchio as Christ did for us. Great implied analogy.

    Wow. Such an incredible write. Cannot wait to read your book - and cannot say enough about this poem! Sad, so sad with a most happy ending. Awesome title and analogy. Love, Shar
