It's just what daddy did....

What Daddy did.

There are those who know
how that
handful of innocuous words can
alter a life.

What.... Daddy..... did.


yeah, it was innocuous
sure it was

innocuous- not harmful or injurious; harmless
not likely to irritate or offend; inoffensive
not interesting, not stimulating, not significant


not significant at all
innocuous
it didn’t hurt a bit

What Daddy did.

This is painful, Sara.
In its deep simplicity, powerful and painful.

I debated whether to post this poem or not. But you get to a point in life where the truth is just the truth and there is no point in pretending otherwise.

It feels good to get it out.

Thanks Susan for commenting on it. Your words feel like long distance hug.

Hope all is well with you today.
your friend,

Sara
