A Daughter’s Pain

Tears flow down my face

as I walk towards his grave

I kneel down

and wonder if he’s okay

I brush off the dirt

and read the inscription

A beloved son and father

What a contradiction

I’m filled with such anger

yet a lot more pain

I stand there speechless

There is nothing to say

My dad, an abuser

One more selfish act

Did he take time to think

He’ll never be back

His son and daughter

dealing with their loss

He just left

and they are paying the cost
