Someone Else’s Father

Published April 22, 2012 by April Fox

someone dear to me said recently
that i am fiercely and wonderfully made
and that i am good
for someone else.

i want to live up to that
assertion-
i want to be the person
someone else’s father
thinks i am-

i am not the person painted
in the anger of my own.

(with gratitude to d.l.)
