Day 6: Daddy by Hana Aw-Dahir


Do you still think about me?
Daddy I will wait for you forever and a minute
Don’t mention my faults, don’t even utter
Delirious in nature, forsaken of pleasure, my soul needs direction
Drenched in desperation in hope of meeting yet again
Do you remember when we went to Dairy Queen?
Downed that ice-cream, barfed and later had conjoining nightmares
Days accelerate; memories permeates and still I wait for you to regain your strength
Dormant but not docile, dead but not fully deceased
Dimensionally dreaming and still I am here
Diplomatic dictator on the brinks of finding diplomacy
Diminishing characteristics, disjoining monotheist perspectives, diluting clear cut objectives
Daddy I miss you
Drawing back to that day
Don’t turn around, daddy explained
Daddy never raised no fool, doctrine of rules, a man with a plan but still no use
Dismembered to pieces, mistaken identity,no second chances, drawn out life within the heart of the ghetto
Devastated to be robbed of you, if that killer only knew, time will tell if he gets his cuz you got yours
Damned if I forget you
Determined to hold within the legacy of my DNA
Don’t leave me but if you do, you left me better than I was yesterday
Daddy, but first I need to know
Do you still think about me, as I think about you?
