The Man

It's hard to describe how I feel right now
I want to explain it but I don't know how
I can't believe its come to this
it's our world, not just his

no matter how hard we try
the man can never hear us cry
we could scream and yell
but he is in his heaven while we're in our hell

The little boy wants his acceptance
but the man keeps his distance
the little boy has so many "whys?"
but the man won't open his eyes

The little girl just wants her dad
but the man doesn't understand
the little girl just wants to be kissed and hugged
but all the man does is shrug

The woman just wants him
But the light is getting dim
She loves him with all her heart
But the man keeps tearing it apart

no matter how hard we try
he can never hear us cry
we could scream and yell
but he is in his heaven while we're in our hell

I want to know one more thing
with my last bit of strength
is this it? Is this the end?

I was brought up and taken care of not by my mom and had less paternal care and consideration. I lived together with my dad and my mom's love but was too far away from the former's care and my mom's presence because they've had a divorce since I was 1. I grew up feeling too detached from my dad. My mom took me away for school. After I graduated I thought of going back to my dad with the optimism that I will rekindle that flame of parental love. Only to receive the horrible news of his untimely death. I am still living with that same old stranded soul that suffered due to lack of proper nurture from a deserving hand. RIP dad! :)
