SINS OF THE FATHER

9638804630_a6d64c9ee9_z

 

 

Composed from the scandal of corrosive loins

Precious life is granted consciousness

New vivacity, supposedly unsoiled – so they say

Perfect and fresh

Given a century to sanctify their predecessor’s offenses  

Righteous

Clean

Then again, a soul created from the tainted has little chance

Bequeathed a life of struggle and inauspicious circumstances

Abandoned by the donor who calls himself father

Disgusting

Foul

A heartless egotistical degenerate who cares for nothing

For no one

Especially those left behind drowning in a wake of rejection

The sins of the father

Passed down generation after naïve generation

Paid in tears by progenies

Innocent

Children

Born blind, misplaced in an unforgiving world

Impossible to live the ordinary

Causality infects with destructive outcomes

Forsaken

Unloved

Vicious clichés a young child discounts

Yet, in time, anesthetized emotions secured inside a hardened heart

Held accountable to pay a debt tenfold, not of one’s own

But for the sake of genetic association

Sins

Of

A

father
