day 173

the burden of rage
is a gift i’ve been given,
from a father too wounded
to think of another.

though, i have muffled,
the anger inside me,
i know i have given
some of it too.

we parents aren’t perfect,
we feel all the pain
of parents before us and
our children again.

i hope in my love,
and desire to heal,
i can move past the anger
until joy is revealed.
