                                         Your physical appearance
                                           Does nothing
                                             To reflect your true self;
                                               A beast
                                                 Living in a bottle
                                                  Capped
                                                   By a cult like religion
                                                    Who thinks
                                                       The world owes him
                                                         If I could just find

                                        The day breaks
                                        As does my life
                                        Looking in
                                        From the outside
                                        Like a two year old
                                        Staring down
                                        A thousand piece puzzle;
                                        Too many pieces
                                        And way too hard to solve
                                        But I'm not two anymore
                                        So I must try
                                        Starting
  ...

          The moment of truth
          Is swiftly drawing near
          Slow and easy
          Is not working
          It is time
          To grab the bandage
          By the edge
          And rip it off quickly
          So you can move on

Each and every
Imperfection
Shows clearly
Under the glare
Of the florescent lights
But their revelation
Is her strength
For she doesn't see them
As flaws
But as the building blocks
That made her
Exactly who she is.         JD

            They call them chambers
            But I call them rooms
            Either way
            They have been abandoned
            For far too long
            And it seems to me

            Don't want to move in.

     At a very young age
     My father taught me how to fish
     In rivers, lakes, oceans and bays
     But what he didn't teach me
     Was how to spot land sharks
     Such as himself
     Who emerge from the waters
     And dwell among us,
     Feeding off the unsuspecting.
     Thankfully, after a few run ins
     I learned how to distinguish them
     In order to avoid
     Ending up with someone
     Just like him.                   JD

Dear Dad
It's that time of year again
When I am forced to acknowledge
That you actually exist
As a little girl you were my hero
Or so I thought
The cool dad
Who did everything with us
The young looking dad
Who I was proud to call mine
But come to find out
You only spent that time
To hide away with your bottle
Without a care
As to the consequences
It may have had on us
So now I know
That you're just a drunk
Existing
With an undeserved title
So yeah, Happy Father's Day.       JD
