The Invisible Father

Love creates 

Shapes the child

In haste

He grows

Another beautiful

Son

Unspoken

Forgotten

The invisible father

Continues to love

Host another

Slighted family

Crying out

In pain

Forgotten

Validation

Begging insane

Cloaked

Revoked

His child’s dreams

Stunted

With shame

The invisible father

Screams

Nothing claims

His voice

To carry

Hopes

Desire

To love

Families

Only regain

His efforts are clear

This child’s fears

Will never

Come near

The disrespect

You’ve shown him

Year after year

Open your eyes

The child he loves

Will not

Go away

The invisible father

Is here to stay.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
