Oh dear father
I want to write you a beautiful poem
I want to brag about you
I want to cryi till kingdom come for you

But I can’t !
If I begin to write about you
These people will know that you choose alcohol over us
They will know about the night’s you made us cry

If I begin to cry for you
Mama will reprimand me for crying for a stranger
She will remind of all your scandal
She will show me all the kids you made in the neighborhood

Oh father
I hope you understand why I’m numb
