Estranged father.
Neglects his own
flesh and blood while
playing dress-up with
another man’s child.

He’s all bitter
with excuses when it comes
to his own children yet
beams with love and excitement
for hitting the jackpot.

  1. This touches me because I came from an estranged father (took off when I was only 6 months old). I never knew of the details of his life there after (except that he went back to his mother’s family in Venezuela) but I bet he fostered some happiness, while claiming, when he left my mom, that he hated us. Thank you for this!! Hugs!!
