Father Mine

It was rare
to see him smile.
But who knows what
demons tormented
his soul?
Angry at the world,
misery was his constant.
He lived a solitary life
never knowing how
to open his heart
to anyone or thing.
Perhaps the king
of the world has
no need for such pursuits
as gratitude or
His unremarkable life
has left its marks
on all of us.
