a short poem about unrealistic expectations
Time Passes

Another year has passed
And yet
We are still no younger

Tears now back where they had been before
And smiles?
Alas, we wonder

I go now
Where I’ve never been
I stare and feel a number

Looking for traces of my father’s love
Deep in the lies
Here in the eyes of another
