On The Day My Father Died

On the Day my Father Died

I woke to the sounds of crying the sight of tears

the air thick with sadness

I woke to a new reality I woke to daddy’s dead

Sobbing Weeping severing Pain

On the Day my Father Died

My family fell apart Mother disappeared

A specter frightening distanced

The ground spun around The Earth Fell

I Walked naked in the grownup streets

Imagine what happens outside, the door removed

I couldn’t find my way out, safely scared

I never went home

Lil Boy Your All Alone

The Sun Is Always Cold

On the Day My Father Died

No One Should’ve Told
