Answer for fatherlessness

#046 Look, our children! (Mathias Sager, water mixable oil colours on canvas board, 53x46x0.4 cm (20.8″x18.1″x0.16″))

There’s a reason why you couldn’t give birth alone
Do you think it’s natural to create a fatherless home?

There’s confusion why as a child you were lone
Do you think it’s common that fathers are gone?

There’s a bitter coldness in a manless syndrome
Do you think you could choose better and overcome?

There’s a lovingly caring father waiting at home
Do you think our daughter too shouldn’t have one?

There’s so much warm support to grow the gem
Do you think it’s threatening you to allow a ‘them’?

There’s a selfless duty of every daughter’s mom
Do you think it’s OK that you claim to be the only one?

There’s a chance that you’ll be forgiven some
Do you think you can live with the consequence to come?

There’s the father’s will to be his daughter’s sun
Do you think at least to tell her where this poem’s from?

      All the best!
