    1. Hello Mario,
      Thank you for the comment. The poem is about a fatherless daughter who tries to confront her absentee father….. His only memory of her is as a helpless baby, but her growth is all her own. No thanks to him. No cost to him…..
      A bit of word play.

      1. I read recently where artists/writers are allowed to move gracefully through “heaviness” that others can’t resolve because they have no outlet. We deal with the truth and that’s the healing.
