Father Do You Hear Me

Writing is a cathartic process in which I find my voice in different facets of each poem. Poetry, is a unique discourse of reflections

Why is it when I verbalize you don’t

Hear the words I articulate

Trying to keep open the communication

Between us

You make it so hard when you turn away

Not wanting to listen

Every night when I say my prayers

I ask for your forgiveness

If I haven’t lived up to your expectations

I need you to stand with me

On this journey to manhood

Father do you hear me

When I was little you use

To give me hugs

Showed me I’m loved

Now you’ve abandon me

I feel so alone

Scroll to Continue

In this world on my own

Tears I have cried I’m

Not ashamed to admit

Father do you hear me

Are you listening now

To my words

I am your son

In your image I was formed

Your voice when I was little

Sounded like thunder

Now that I’m a man

It sounds like a melodious note from a song

If you hear me dear father

Please listen to this

I love you know matter what

Sun shines on a new day

And I put to rest the past

And someday I hope you

Come to see the man I’ve

Become
