Fading Father


you left us treading for life at a crucial time

assuming our emminate doom.

you still walked away 

but that is not who we are. We are not defined by our abandonment.Statistics are not our friend.We refused to be victims of your ignorance.We are defined by our character,resilience,example, and areodd defying.we rise to the occasion.we survive.we are victorious.Actions speak andtime tells our triumphant story.As for you, all I remember is what your back looks like and the sun comes up.
