Day Twenty Eight, Poem Number Twenty Eight: “Accursed”

Her legs are crooked,
her arms are obtuse.
Your humor is dark
there is no excuse.

If you are Love,
then why is this so?
Such a beautiful girl,
not in body but in soul.

She has needs
as most of us do.
Yet she was unworthy
but for daily abuse.

The anger wells within me,
a punishment so unpleasant.
The anger pools in her,
frustration turned resentment.

I don’t want to be a father
for my own selfish reasons.
You shouldn’t be a Father,
guilty of spiritual treason.
