After a fight with my Dad

Tears are spilling

The whole world is reeling

They're nervous

Whatever they say would be useless

My nostrils flared

For that moment i simply didn't care

Words came out

God knows why, but i didn't have to shout

Regardless, i did

Raging emotions seeped through the lid

That which has been said

Tearfully,

Regretfully, unfortunately cannot be unsaid

 

Reaching home i paused at the door

Inside i knew what would be in store

Awkward silences in the hall

Not a single eye-contact at all

 

Unnecessary hate, purposefully late

At this rate the situation won't abate 

We reached a stalemate

Both parties crushing under the same weight

But still we waited; why do we still wait?

Perhaps there are some words that we cannot translate

But the more I thought, the more i wondered who's at fault

I felt myself vibrate, I was feeling irate! 

For heaven's sakes calm down, count to eight

I already had this debate,

I must have mindset rotated, my ego deflated

It's time to set a date; time to get things straight

Get this settled before i wake

 

Sometimes you make me so mad; i just can't take it

Sometimes inexplicably I'm like that; i just won't take it

But it's better to let it out than let it stagnate

The fact is that not everyone I can placate

But you are my Dad it's like that, it's fate

Whatever happens, happened; time to seal the floodgates

 

Sorry I hurt you, but I was hurt too

Still i don't forget whose roof i'm under; it's the truth

If respect is what you want, respect is what you'll get

Who am i to deny you of a simple fact

Though i may not be what you would ever want

You are my Dad and I am your son

Hence I pledge by the light of the sun

Whatever you say I'll get done
