A poem written about the complexity of my daddy…


Mighty man of merit

Masquerades mistakes

with masks of expectations

Pretends to feel no pain

Poses as a statue of power

Head of the home front

Controller of circumstances

Conceals all that he can not do

Disguises sins as he

Sanctions high standards

Deceives himself as the

Critic of others

Falsified connoisseur while

Hiding emotions behind

Expert supremacy

Unmasked by his daughter

A testimony of his love
