(1998) For Dad - Poem by Deana Rode

What does it feel like to hate someone you love,
To wish they were better even though you admire them
or to be in disgust when you think she's beautiful
How do you live in fear and happiness simultaneously
And wish you were gone but yet desire to stay...

Can you ever find eternal peace in your chaotic soul
or sleep without worrying what tomorrow might bring
Will you ever be able to fulfil the vows;
the words you promised so long ago,
or will it be lost forever in your saddened mind.
