Mother's plea to a cold father
Priorities of righteousness over love
Commitment to power
To be a dictator or a husband?
How can I punish you for this?
By rejecting your child
You let your heart grow dark
Cold and empty is your soul
A father and husband you were
Proud and blessed with family
You gave it away, threw away love unbiased
For a taste of power
Master of the Universe, you never were
Even after I left, you failed to see
Hurtful words are immortal
It’s the soul that dies
If you can’t control me, you don’t love me.
Then, don’t love me.
But I remember when you lived in your heart
I remember your tears at our wedding
Memories distorted by sickness,
disappointment and doubt
It was you that changed, not I.
I remember when you lived in a cocoon of warmth
Which you traded for a cold attic of enmity
In which to house your troubled mind
Why do you not know?
The heart you sought to break
Of a young boy yearning for his father I
s now behind a wall of stone
The strongest steel is forged in the fires of Hell
Where you lived.
