My Father My Future Daughter

March 9, 2018

I can see my father’s rage within me

now I get it

it’s hard to keep calm when nobody listens

 

I can see how my hands shake

its subtle now

but like my father and my grandfather

I can only see quivering hands in my future

 

how many names can I hold?

is three too many?

is there a legacy to uphold?

“No” says my future daughter

I’m ok with it

she doesn’t need to hold more weight

just because more people existed

before her
