Those tears in his eyes
and we wonder why.
His boy had cancer, at the age of six.
The days were ending, and no money could save.
Another son’s mind has gone awry.
Some say it’s a result of his undivided attention for his youngest dying child.
He hasn’t seen his eldest in ages.
Who knows if he is still alive.
Dysfunctional; neglect; dejection.
And those tears in his eyes – those that you thought was just a show –
Do we still wonder why?
