Dad - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

I see you beneath your shield of
Self protection.
You don't want me to know but already
I am you.
I have always been you, your blood,
Your guilt, your child.
I am happy, no, not content, but
I am happy.
My love has broadened, my trust
I have given.
From strength to strength, I have
I have hope because I have
Forgiven and I have forgotten.
You Are nobody I know.
