Estranged father neglects his flesh and blood
while playing dress-up with another man’s child
he’s all bitter with excuses for his biological children
yet beams with excitement for hitting the jackpot
with his new family.

  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!!
