Let Go: A Poem

I found out I don’t really have a dad. If I am honest, that is exceedingly sad.

Every girl should get a dad –

to love her and see her and help her be free

from the burdens of racing to make her own dad feel complete.

It has been tricky to realize that this fact is true –

all of the stories and blaming and, “Of course I love you.”

But, true it is and no doubt it’s the time

to let go, love myself and live a life that is wholeheartedly mine.
