"Death never asks nor answers why"

Fly Away Home

Fly away home birds to the sky
Death never asks nor answers why

My father could not bother to
Have anything at all to do
With his strangely quiet baby
Now and then my mother maybe
No feeling no dealing with me
So he agreed to disagree
And threw us both into the street

Into disorderly retreat
Back to where my mother began
With her own mother as before 
Giving birth to this child this man
Who came home late to leave no more
Alone and broken just as she
Was in my heart a weeping sore

And after all these years here I
Bury them all now as I die

I agree with Marqguerite, don't give in to despair. Trust in your Maker, there is a purpose to your pain. Search and you will find it.

Well my friend as I know you are now stronger and better off then you were before I see this poem as a wise and open methaphor of the life you have lived and continue to live but now free of the chains of past. At least that is how I read the images you offer openly here to your readers. Well done my friend and fellow poet.
