ABSENT FATHER

Updated: Aug 14

He's always anxious of what you might think of him


The boy knows he never meets your expectations

So he hides instead, under your tone of voice

Despite fear of judgment and resentment, he comes back again -

just in time for your grandiose recital.


Pale, he stares and listens with modest dreams kept inside him

Never making a connection with your intermittent existence
