A Poem by Lady Miyako-san of the West

A poem I wrote when I saw my dad after eight years of no contact with him.


I didn't think this would be hard
After all these yeard
to see you, to be near you
But it is, and I know we both know why

This pain that I feel
These tears that I shed
The hatred that I harbor
All because of you

And I try to be strong
I try not to give in
But all attempts are in vain
Because in the end, I break down

I swore I would never let anyone
hurt me this way
Yet, here you are
and here's the pain

All I ask is one thing
This simple question
I hope that you can answer

Author's Note

Lady Miyako-san of the West
I want you to put yourself in my shoes and think of how you would feel if your father abandoned you and your mother, then showed up eight years later.
