# # Bastard Son's Story - Poem by Sonya Florentino

I stand before you Father,
but you refuse to see
Oh dear Father, have I fallen from the tree
of your good grace, our last embrace
now a memory
Oh Father, have you forgotten me

I kneel before you Father
But you do not feel
Oh dear Father, have you forsaken me
I am your flesh and blood
Dear Father, look at me!
I am your ill-begotten history

    This is a fascinating poem with a myriad of possible interpretations - from a personal (familial?) expression of existential guilt, to a more metaphorical comment about man's destruction of the world and all its riches. Your internal rhymes are most appealing and the whole piece has a biblical flavor which works superbly. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    ... as history, so also the progeny? Interesting plea for clarification to rationalize? or have explicated? Hmmm. Interesting possibilities. (Report) Reply
