What Happened to Dad?

Orphaned.

Orphanage

abuse.

 

No love.

 

No education

no structure

no care

no home.

 

No love.

 

Here it was hard.

No friends

no family

no kindness

no belonging.

 

No love.

 

When we

came along

he found it

hard to love.

 

It was

too late

to learn

to love.
