I am not much of a writer,
You must login to vote
This is sad but it is true.
However, I figured I would try my hand at it,
Just to be able to express myself to you.
We first met, a few years ago
However, I must say
Getting to know you has not been easy
From so far away.
I will continue try, no doubt
Because you are my father
In my desperate need to connect
This is why I bother.
Some say, everything happens for a reason
This I hope is true
For years I searched for a reason
Why my childhood was spent without you.
No grudges are held anymore
As my youthful thinking starts to fade
I just want to learn about the people before me
And how it became that I was made.
Do the roots to our family tree run deep?
Or are they as short as they feel?
In this most uncertain world today
Alone is sometimes too real.
I guess in my quest for knowledge
I am trying to fill a hole
A hole deep down inside me
That sits beside my soul.
As generations, dwindle down to just a couple
I am left with a sense of despair
Will there be anyone of my bloodline left
On the other hand, will anyone even care?
