This is the time when all he can do is to reminisce,
The child who was once born, without expectation and premise.
Raised by his grandmother with love and affection;
Molded with principles, discipline, and commiseration.

Independent even though he needs attention,
Reserved and obedient, despite his inner nefarious personification.
A child seeking for someone or perhaps something:
Yearning and patiently waiting, as the years are passing.
A broken family and a broken identity:
Grew in a modern-day concept and infidelity.
Brokenness and death struck to the very core of his being;
Lost and hopeless – an everyday long-suffering.
Deprived of love, a motherly love;
Deprived of a family, he wished he could have.
Fleeting years of what could have been a relationship, now just a dream:
Somewhere in his mind is hoping and wanting to scream.
Birthdays, graduations, and different occasions;
Good tidings and joyful memories in every season.
Childhood, puberty, adolescence, and or his existence;
Adulthood, fatherhood, and all his experiences.
Fortitude, that what keeps him going:
Trusting everything to God, the faith he is believing.
A wife and a daughter that mended that great loss and disarray,
A love he found, not from a woman who once disowned him and ran away.
As he is creating this sonnet or perhaps a prosody;
He is contemplating from his heart, a familiar rhapsody.
Some things may have come out great and some came out tragic,
But it was all a ride, and life decisions never to be apologetic.

The chapters of his life may have found their direction,
But still, the least part of his identity wanted a resolution.
This is just a reflection that could have been a perfect melody,
But this is just a ballad, a lyric from his heart; from a son who came from a broken family.
