I was jealous of my brother getting more attention than I was.

Do you see me?
Have I not done enough - what you've asked?
Do you love me?
Nothing seems to be good enough

Games, practices - sports is all you see
What you care about.
I notice, play along, but that's not all there is!
There's more to me.

I crave something different
Literature, art, drama.
Are these wrong to like?
Am I wrong..?


Do you really care?
What can I do to make you happy?
Make you proud?
Make you see?

All I want is your love.
But, nothing's enough.
Nothing..

Gentle whispers in the dark
From the Father of all things,
Sooth the soul
And stop the salty currents


You are a lily among the thorns, my love.

A Better Father
