Our Father's Day is quite unique, as we were turned on each other by one person. Yet we prevailed. We reunited, stronger than what separated us.

Our First

 

 

After all these years,

I know.

We just reunited,

Over a year ago.

For years, we’ve been

At each other’s throats,

Then radio silence.

Never would’ve guessed

One woman

Would turn us all against

One another.

Father vs. Daughter,

Father kept from son.

That toxic person,

Abused us all enough.

Don't think they counted on us,

Planning an escape from all

The abuse thrown at us,

That tore us all apart.

We fled;

Like our lives depended on it.

Time has healed

Some of these scars

Left on our hearts.

A father

To a new kind of son.

Renewed father

To the withheld one.

Strong father;

With, just as strong, his daughter.

We made it through the worst;

The betrayal, lies, deceit.

Unstoppable force,

An odd family of four.

Never to again be torn,

By lies, abuse, or force.
