I Am Not My Father ~ Author Raja Williams

Creative Talents Unleashed

As I watched him walk away,

I realized the burdens he has carried

He carries with him;

His father’s sins

They are attached to his soul

And anchored into his DNA

He walks like his father

He talks like his father

His angry outbursts performed;

Just like his father

In my own moments of anger

I accusingly yell out

“You’re just like your dad,

why would you want to be like that?”

The silence cuts with a knife

His stare;

Kills me dead where I stand

That was the last time I saw him

He walked out the door;

His last words . . .

“I am not my father”

Three days later . . .

He died of a drug overdose

He Died;

Just like his father.
