Father

Father

A Poem by Jimmy Glenn
"

My father left me a few years back, and the simple conversation I had with him yesterday made it feel like he left again. Reopening all wounds.

"
There he goes again
Leaving his kids behind
My pain can just begin
As our conversation can only remind

He was there for me once
I mean only kind of
And that weight is tons
 But I know I do love

My sister gets a better life
Good
She won't have to strive
It's about time my parents stood

I love him dearly
He is my father
But only barely
His other family, he would rather

He talks like an adult
It's about time
My emotions catapult 
As I write this Rhyme

My father hurt me
He left in a time of need
That was a huge fee
And was based on greed

At least that's what it felt like
When he left for her 
Through my heart, a spike
You damaged me for sure

No contact for a year
Maybe two
I don't know how to steer
Through

You talked for a little
Then left 
Making my life a rhiddle
And the world alone I heft

Cora is more needy
I get that now
It's not greedy
But I can't understand how

You can take one child
And forget the others
That is mild
Never mind me and my brothers

You have grown
to see just how
 You F***ed your own
Children as of now

I hope you learn fast
Cora needs a dad
Something I never really had
So don't you make her an outcast
