A Boys Journal. Daddy Must Go. Date Unknown. Boy Aged 19

 

Daddy has to go

Tear filled eyes do not keep hold

They don’t keep me here

Just a pulling inside

A moment

Soon it’s gone

Tiny face not forgotten

But a different calling

Stronger

Guilt ridden memories

Smoothed out with tiny needles

My son, you’re safe

Your tiny hands do not compete

Let go

My father and his scales weigh heavier

My daddy in the dark

I am not your hero

My jaded eyes at the candy store

He has what I need.

Do not look at me like that.
